‘On Track 4’ is a write-on student workbook that provides a comprehensive study programme for students wishing to sit any combination of the following NCEA Level 2 Mathematics Achievement Standards : AS 2.1 - Apply co-ordinate geometry methods in solving problems AS 2.2 - Apply graphical methods in solving problems AS 2.3 - Apply sequences and series in solving problems AS 2.4 - Apply trigonometric relationships in solving problems AS 2.5 - Apply network methods in solving problems AS 2.8 - Design a questionnaire AS 2.9 - Use statistical methods to make an inference AS 2.10 - Conduct an experiment to investigate a situation using statistical methods AS 2.11 - Evaluate a statistically based report AS 2.12 - Apply probability methods in solving problems AS 2.13 - Investigate a situation involving elements of chance using a simulation AS 2.14 - Apply systems of equations in solving problems 'On Track 4' is best bought at the start of the school year and used throughout the year as a homework resource. Alternatively, the book may be used as an independent study resource for use in the lead-up to internal and external assessments. ‘On Track 4’ has 280 pages and covers NCEA Level 2 standards worth a total of 33 credits. Instruction boxes and worked examples appear on almost every page to help students with independent study. At the end of each chapter there is a valuable revision test which can be used by candidates to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses before assessments. A full set of answers is included, which can act as a guide to structuring quality answers. All pages are perforated so that homework assignments can be handed in while work is ongoing and the answer pages may be retained by the teacher if desired. Once completed, ‘On Track 4’ provides a useful set of study notes at assessment time. It should be kept as a reference book if students intend taking a Year 12 statistics course.
