About the Book

The Second Edition of Mathematics for Australia 5 is an updated resource that continues to cover the content outlined within the Australian Curriculum. This edition is a result of a complete rewrite and refresh of the previous edition, providing an engaging approach to support comprehension and application of concepts. 

The textbook contains a foundation on each topic that is then built upon to promote comprehension and retention. The material is presented in a clear, easy-to-follow style, questions transitioning from basic to advanced, and often contextualised to appeal to student interests and relate concepts to the everyday. 

To support learning and teaching within an interactive environment, Discussions, Activities, Investigations, and Research exercises are used throughout the chapters to develop understanding, problem-solving, and reasoning.

The associated digital subscription comes with additional learning resources, such as Watch Listen Learn, examples which are animated with step-by-step voiced explanations. The digital benefits are not only applicable in the classroom, but also as a support tool for students working independently. 

Within the textbook, each chapter begins with an Opening Problem, offering an insight into the application of the mathematics that will be studied in the chapter. Important information and keynotes are highlighted while worked examples provide step-by-step instructions with concise and relevant explanations. Extensive Review Sets are located at the end of each chapter, comprising a range of question types including short answer, extended response and multiple choice. Instead of producing a separate homework book for this edition, additional questions and homework exercises have been included in the core textbook.

We have endeavoured to provide a stimulating textbook aiming to develop and encourage student understanding. Through the use of contextual problems and the application of technology, we hope to help students appreciate the application of mathematics in everyday use, and prepare for the continuation of their Mathematics education.
