This makes is 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 fourteen Achievement Standards, Theta Dimensions Workbook is complemented by Theta Mathematics Workbook.

These write-on workbooks can be used alongside any mathematics textbook, and contain the worked examples, content summaries, and real-work, 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 Dimensions so students can read additional explanations at home.
