# Theta Mathematics Workbook: NCEA Level 2

##### Description

**Theta Mathematics Workbook**has been written 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

**Theta 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,

**Theta Mathematics Workbook**is complemented by

**Theta Dimensions Workbook**.

This workbook can be used alongside any mathematics textbook, and 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 2.

The CD contains spreadsheets and worked examples from Theta Mathematics so students can read additional explanations at home.
