Maths Motivators: Book B: Non-Linear Graphs and Calculus

By Nicolla Eagar

Time pressures often dissuade teachers from incorporating activities into senior mathematics classrooms that are student centred or simply different from the “tried and true”.

This two-book series provides some respite from traditional textbook exercises by offering inspired and engaging approaches for introducing, teaching, revising and assessing core concepts in senior mathematics. Included are independent exercises to establish fundamental skills, collaborative activities to promote classroom discussion and further understanding, and revision assignments that will serve to highlight areas of strengths and weaknesses. This is a must have resource for busy teachers of senior mathematics wanting to inject some energy and innovative approaches into their teaching practices.
