Total of 4 Credits - Externally Assessed

The Sigma Workbook 'AS 1.2 - Algebraic Procedures' is a write-on student workbook covering the mathematics students must understand to gain AchievedMerit, or Excellence in the externally assessed Mathematics NCEA Achievement Standard 1.2 – ‘Apply algebraic procedures in solving problems’ (AS 91027).

In this workbook students will find clear explanations and detailed worked examples showing the step-by-step processes that will be needed to solve each type of problem, these are followed by a large number of practice exercises and problems of increasing difficulty. At the end of the workbook there is an Achievement Standard Test. Candidates should use this to evaluate their strengths and weaknesses before the external assessment.

A full set of answers is included, which acts as a guide to structuring quality answers. An abbreviated version of the Achievement Criteria and Explanatory Notes of the Achievement Standard itself complete the resource.  

Topics Covered in this Workbook Include :

  • Substitution      
  • Simplifying Expressions      
  • Expanding and Factorising   
  • Working with Fractions      
  • Solving Equations      
  • Solving Linear Equations      
  • Solving Inequations
  • Writing an Equation      
  • Writing a Formula      
  • Rearranging a Formula   
  • Simultaneous Equations      
  • Expanding Double Brackets      
  • Factorising Quadratics
  • Solving Quadratic Equations      
  • Solving Quadratic Inequations   
  • Problems Involving Quadratics         
  • Mixed Problems     

The Sigma Workbook 'AS 1.2 Algebraic Procedures' is best bought before the standard is taught at school and used throughout this time as a classroom and homework resource. Alternatively, the workbook would make an excellent independent study resource in the lead-up to the external assessment of Achievement Standard 1.2.

Once completed, 'AS 1.2 Algebraic Procedures' provides a useful set of revision notes at assessment time. It can be kept as a reference book if students intend taking a Year 12 mathematics course.
