‘Fast Track 4’ is a write-on student workbook that provides a comprehensive study programme for students wishing to sit any combination of the NCEA Level 2 Mathematics Achievement Standards listed below. A selection of these Standards is best suited for able students wishing to take Level 3 NCEA Mathematics:
2.1 Apply co-ordinate geometry methods in solving problems
2.2 Apply graphical methods in solving problems
2.3 Apply sequences and series in solving problems
2.4 Apply trigonometric relationships in solving problems
2.6 Apply algebraic procedures in solving problems
2.7 Apply calculus methods in solving problems
2.9 Use statistical methods to make an inference
2.12 Apply probability methods in solving problems
2.14 Apply systems of equations in solving problems
'Fast 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.
‘Fast Track 4’ has 220 pages and covers NCEA Level 2 standards worth a total of 30 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 in the book are perforated pages 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, ‘Fast 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 13 maths course.
