A new edition of Jacaranda Maths Quest 12 Further Mathematics VCE Units 3 & 4 6e eGuidePLUS is coming in 2018. Helping teachers help students at the point of learning, so everystudent can experience success in VCE Mathematics – in the classroom, at home and thus ultimately in the exam. You will be able to purchase this title later this year, to learn more about the series visit the Jacaranda VCE Mathematics page.

Maths Quest 12 Further Mathematics, Fifth edition VCE Units 3 and 4 eGuidePLUS
provides teachers with online support through instant access to student and teacher texts plus a complementary set of extensive, customisable assessment (including SACs) and curriculum materials to make teacher planning and preparation easier.

Features and benefits

• Complete, in-depth coverage of the new VCE study design for 2016-2018.
• Many HTML5 interactivities are available. These are designed to engage, excite and enhance understanding by bringing difficult concepts to life.
• The theory is written by highly experienced and successful teachers with a proven and fundamental understanding of how students learn mathematics and succeed in exams.
• Every exercise contains three levels of carefully graded questions which allow students to practise, consolidate and master their knowledge independently.
• Thousands of new questions have been written exclusively for this series, including many higher level questions that stretch students’ understanding of mathematics for improved learning outcomes.
• CAS support is provided within the student text through activities and questions. Additionally, students can obtain detailed step-by-step instructions by accessing the TI-Nspire CAS or the Casio ClassPad II Calculator Manuals in the Prelim section of their eBookPLUS.
studyON VCE Further Mathematics Units 3 and 4 is fully integrated with the student text. studyON is Jacaranda’s unique study, revision and exam preparation tool, containing all past VCAA exam questions from 2006.
• Work programs, topic tests and SACs equip teachers with extensive support materials.

Teachers can rely on Jacaranda’s dedicated customer service and support.
