Australian Signpost Maths for NSW 5 has been updated and redesigned to reflect current best practice in the teaching and learning of maths concepts, activities and digital technology. Written by Alan McSeveny and his experienced author team, Australian Signpost Maths for NSW provides a complete year's work and addresses all aspects of the Australian Curriculum NSW syllabus, including content and Working Mathematically strands.
All activities in this student book have been matched to the Australian Curriculum NSW syllabus content strands and syllabus outcomes and develop students' conceptual understanding, logical reasoning and problem solving. Worked examples and explanations are given throughout the student book where new ideas are introduced, and a maths pictorial dictionary is provided to help students' digest new vocabulary. Open-ended problem solving and inquiry-based investigations and activities are designed to meet differentiated needs and learning styles. Exercises are carefully graded and colour-coded by content strand.
The sequence of the units within this text are ordered in a suggested teaching sequence, however a flexible structure has been provided to suit you. Australian Curriculum NSW syllabus references are on every lesson page to allow you to link your planning to curriculum descriptors and specific lesson plans.
Pages are clear and colourful throughout this book, and retain features from previous Signpost editions including quirky, engaging cartoons and illustrations which customers have come to know and appreciate.
