High school

Simplify and SolveThis 82 page booklet contains work on simplifying expressions, exponents, solving simultaneous equations using algebra and graphs. The pages are ideal for Year 10 and Year 11 Algebra and specifically work for the "Apply Algebraic Procedures in Solving Problems" external examination.

Expand and FactoriseThis booklet contains 70 pages of worksheets (with answers) cover simple expanding and factorising through to harder work with quadratics. In most cases there are 5 parallel question papers that you can complete. It is an ideal Algebra resource for Year 10 students through to Year 11 especially those that want to sit the MCAT exam AS91027 Apply algebraic procedures in solving problems.

Year 11 Algebra SkillsThis resource can either be used to determine whether you have the algebra skills needed to proceed into a Year 12 mathematics course or it can also be used to study for AS91027 (the Level 1 MCAT  Maths Common Assessment Task). There are worked examples, practice questions, and practice assessments with all answers provided. Topics include indices, manipulating brackets, expanding and factorising, solving linear equations and other algebraic expressions. The booklet is 26 pages in length.

Algebra Aiming for AchievementTo gain "Achievement" in Year 11, students need to work on algebraic fractions, exponents, expanding, factorising, forming and solving linear equations or inequations, quadratic equations, rearranging formulae, simplifying, solving pairs of simultaneous equations and substituting values into formulae. The booklet contains separate worksheet pages on all of these at an Achievement level. There are also 6 pages of general revision at the back.

Apply Algebraic ProceduresThis booklet is designed for the MCAT (Mathematics Common Assessment Task). There are specific achievement, merit and excellence examples and exercises to cater for all student levels. The booklet contains both writeon sheets and worksheets that could be used as homework or classwork sheets. At the back are some actual old exam papers (and answers).

Systems of Equations (NCEA Level 2)AS91269 is a Year 12, Level 2 Achievement Standard worth 2 credits. This booklet provides a number of situations and problems that require you to form and use pairs of simultaneous equations and inequations. Both linear and non linear equations are used. There are 40 pages with many worked examples, lots of hints, tips and full answers.

LogarithmsBefore calculators logarithms were used to assist in multiplication and division. They still appear in a number of calculations in engineering, science, business and economics. There is a video that looks at what a logarithm is, why use it and examples on how to use them. There is also a PDF booklet with further information.
