The purpose of this text is to assist Year 11 students with their preparation for tests and examinations in the Specialist Mathematics course for Western Australia.
- The Syllabus Checklist indicates to students which skills they must have acquired and the objectives they need to meet under each of the major headings of the course.
- The Worked Examples are presented in a detailed manner, with brief notes and explanations being used to amplify the understanding for the particular question. Some of these worked examples could be used in the written notes that students are permitted to take into an examination.
- The Problems to Solve section in each chapter provides students with a broad range of questions without the repetitive nature of problems usually associated with a course textbook.
- The Trial Tests are an additional component to this text, and these allow students to familiarise themselves with examination questions. Suggested times are given for these tests, and students should be encouraged to adhere to these times to prepare properly for final examinations. Fully worked solutions are provided for students to receive immediate, accurate and useful feedback on their performance.
