Description

Foundation Mathematics (Third edition) Student book features content with unmatched depth, a range of new and updated choice of options, and accessible student-friendly language. For the first time, the course will be supported by a range of engaging digital resources for students and teachers designed to improve learning outcomes and save teachers time.

The series retains all of the features and trusted content from the previous edition, while undergoing a significant restructure and redesign to make it a truly 21st-century teaching and learning resource.

Key features:

  • Accessible language = accessible learning
  • Student Book is divided into two sections:
    - PART 1: APPLICATIONS
    All chapters in this section encourage students to apply mathematical concepts to key vocational areas (e.g. Hospitality, Building and Construction, Electrical Trades, Health Sciences, Sport Sciences, Automotive and Design)
    - PART 2: MATHEMATICAL SKILLS
    All chapters in this section cover key mathematical skill development to support learning (e.g. Number, Percentage, Ratios, Volume, Length and Area)
  • Flexible, practical and engaging teacher support aligned to the most popular vocational courses and contexts
  • Teaching and assessment support to help you plan courses
  • A wide range of printable, project worksheets to support each chapter and apply concepts to real-world situations (available on the Teacher obook assess)
  • Printable practice entry exams (with answers) for Police Force and Nursing courses (available on the Teacher obook assess)
  • Teaching programs and correlation grids for Prevocational Mathematics (Queensland) and Mathematics Foundation Course (Western Australia).
