The majority of teachers and parents would agree that students who wish to achieve confidence and success at this level should:

Understand all the basic ideas and rules

Practise these rules and ideas by going through graded exercises

Understand why and how they made errors,so that hopefully they are reduced or eliminated in further exercises

This book has been written to fulfill these 3 vital requirements by incorporating the following features:

Firstly, the book has been split up into the 10 major important topics which have been finalised in the New Australian Curriculum by ACARA.

Each of these major topics has been broken down into a number of simpler ideas and rules, thus saving educators and students valuable time in research.

Each page covers only one idea or rule, thus giving students clarity.

Each concept is thoroughly, but simply, explained for understanding.

Each formula, rule or set of steps is highlighted in larger print for ease of memorising.

Each formula and page contains at least one fully worked example. This not only reinforces understanding, but also shows the student how to apply each formula to typical questions.

At the end of each chapter, there are usually 5 or more comprehensive graded exercises for practise, which cover all the ideas in the topic. If a student is not sure how to do a particular problem, all they need to do is turn back to the page number shown in order to find a very similar example.

In addition, the text presentation is well spaced out, in order to make the subject matter more appealing to this age group.
