VitalSource eText FAQs

Theta Mathematics has been completely updated to reflect the current requirements of Mathematics and Statistics in the New Zealand Curriculum. In order to provide teachers and students with a comprehensive package that covers all fourteen Achievement Standards, Theta Mathematics is complemented by Theta Dimensions.

The chapters for each Achievement Standard are colour-coded to make them easy to find, and liberal use of colour throughout the book makes it easy and interesting to use. Helpful tags on the edge of each page enable students to navigate between the answer section and the related exercises.
