The successful VCE Maths Quest series has been completely revised in these second editions to comprehensively cover the VCE 2006-2009 Mathematics Study Design. Additional exam practice has also been included in the form of further analysis tasks for each chapter. VCE Maths Quest offers teachers and students a complete resource package, including the Student Text, Teachers editions and Fully Worked Solutions Manual for each of the student texts. The Teacher Edition contains everything in the student edition package plus more, such as: *Answers printed in red next to most questions in each exercise and each investigation *Annotated study design information and a readily accessible work program. The teacher edition CD-ROM now contains four tests per chapter with fully worked solutions, Worksheets and their solutions, a work program, and other curriculum advice - all in a fully editable Word more
