About the books

A complete solution for Level 6 of the New Zealand Mathematics Curriculum, the Gamma Mathematics and Gamma Fundamentals cover all thirteen NCEA Level 1 Mathematics Achievement Standards. The material in the books has been selected so that schools can design courses that meet the needs of all students. Most students will enter for 6 or 7 Achievement Standards at most, so a double-book solution means less waste but there is some overlap in Number and Statistics so a narrow choice is not dictated to schools.

Gamma Mathematics covers nine of the Achievement Standards, including all the externally assessed material. It is the ideal text for students continuing on to do NCEA at Level 2 in Year 12. Gamma Mathematics has an associated Workbook with 80 self-contained assignments.

Gamma Fundamentals also covers nine achievement standards. It is the ideal text for students who want to gain NCEA Level 1 credits early, or who are not continuing with Maths after Year 11. The material in Gamma Fundamentals is internally assessed at NCEA. Gamma Fundamentals also has an associated Workbook for students to cover extra material in their own time.
