YEAR 11"Maths Quest 11: Mathematics Methods"has been specifically designed for VCE Mathematics Units 1 & 2.AUSTRALIA\'S LARGEST MATHEMATICS PROJECTMaths Quest is a quest to uncover Australia\'s best teaching ideas. All materials published under theMaths Quest banner have been developed in close consultation with Australia\'s mathematics teachers to ensure we deliver products that work in the classroom. Surveys of every secondary school in Australia took place through 1997 and 1998 to determine the topics and features mathematics teachers would like to see. This award-winning series is the result of your feedback.Each Maths Quest chapter is put through rigorous checks, reviews and trials to ensure: all exercises are well graded with many skill and application problems, including multiple-choice quesitons worked examples are extremely clear and match exercises exactly a good balance of real-life application questions, investigations and career profiles exists that summary and chapter review exercises are comprehensive the content and approach match the curriculum technology applications have been fully integrated where appropriate Maths Quest texts are full-colour and new graphics and stunning colour photographs combine to create real-world links for students. Colour panels, heading and icons help students navigate more easily through the text and make the important connections.A CD-ROM WITH EVERY PURCHASEEach Maths Quest book features a CD-ROM with: the entire text, and hyperlinks to technology applications, answers and worked examples hundreds of interactive technology files, including spreadsheets, dynamic geometry, graphics calculator programs, computer algebra systems and more revision worksheets and Test yourself sets of multiple choice questions Skillsheets to support students experiencing any difficulties WEBSITE website offers complete support for all Maths Quest users: download student worksheets, test yourself and skillsheet samples and graded exercises - free! download a choice of maths software to complete sample investigatiosn - free! keep up-to-date with new resources in the Maths Quest range link to other mathematics and related software sites curriculum information for maths teachersshow more
