Part of the series Essential Mathematics CORE.
Essential Mathematics CORE for the Australian Curriculum Years 7–10 provides a practical interpretation of the Australian Curriculum to help students meet the minimum requirements of the Achievement Standards.
Combining a proven teaching and learning formula with innovative digital capabilities, Essential Mathematics CORE encourages students who require additional support in mathematics to master the basics of applied mathematics in everyday life and in the workplace.
- Revised ‘Understanding’ questions
‘Understanding’ questions have been revised to be more closely linked to the ‘Key Ideas’ section to promote class discussion and to help consolidate the fundamental skills and concepts needed for the topic.
- ‘Now You Try’ questions for every worked example
Questions without worked solutions have been added to every worked example. These additional questions give students immediate practice at the same type of question covered in the worked example before completing equivalent exercise questions. ‘Now You Try’ questions also provide teachers with extra material to demonstrate questions in the same style as the worked example, without students having seen the solution beforehand.
- Modelling activities
Modelling activities in each chapter encourage students to use the modelling process to define, solve, verify and communicate solutions to real-life problems.
- Tools to help students keep track of their progress
‘Learning Intentions’ at the beginning of each lesson clearly state what the student can expect to learn in the lesson. A checklist of success criteria, complete with short example questions, is then provided at the end of every chapter to assist students with keeping track of their progress, and as a form of quick revision.
- New Pre-tests
A new Diagnostic Pre-test in the Interactive Textbook for each chapter can be used to test students on the content before the topic has started and can be re-done later to assess progress. This is in addition to the existing Pre-test that assesses prior knowledge.
- Even more comprehensive digital support
Our extensive digital support now offers even more features to enhance the teaching, learning, assessment and reporting experience through integrated digital resources and a powerful Learning Management System (LMS).
