Gamma Mathematics Workbook has been completely updated to reflect the current requirements of Mathematics and Statistics in the New Zealand Curriculum. It contains a huge array of exercises that are linked to the corresponding Gamma Mathematics. This makes it easy for teachers to choose - and students to remember - homework, extra practice and revision exercises that match what has been done in class. In order to provide a comprehensive package that covers all thirteen Achievement Standards, Gamma Mathematics Workbook is complemented by Gamma Fundamentals Workbook. The Gamma Mathematics workbook can be used alongside any textbook. It contains the worked examples, content summaries, and real-world, in-context problems, investigations and puzzles that David Barton is famous for encouraging all students to gain and demonstrate a thorough understanding of mathematical concepts at NCEA Level 1. The CD contains spreadsheets that include all data sets referred to in Gamma Mathematics and Gamma Mathematics Workbook and answers to activities where technology would be helpful. There are also worked examples from Gamma Mathematics so students can read additional explanations at home.
