Haese Mathematics

What motivates you to write mathematics books?"My passion is for education as a whole, rather than just mathematics. In Australia I think it is too easy to take education for granted, because it is seen as a right but with too little appreciation for the responsibility that goes with it. But the more I travel to places where access to education is limited, the more I see children who treat it as a privilege, and the greater the difference it makes in their lives. But as far as mathematics goes, I grew up with mathematics textbooks in pieces on the kitchen table, and so I guess it continues a tradition." What do you aim to achieve in writing?"I think a few things:
What interests you outside mathematics?"Lots of things! Horses, show jumping and course design, alpacas, badminton, running, art, history, faith, reading, hiking, photography ...."

Content overview
2014 2021 NewThree types of questions:
Essential concepts
 â€śConceptâ€ť questions are designed to test a studentâ€™s understanding of concepts and terminology.
 â€śWhat is the formula for?â€ť and â€śHow do I use it?â€ť are two questions a student should be able to answer confidently during revision.
Skills and practice
 â€śSkillâ€ť questions are designed to test fundamental skills that every student should know. These questions are usually noncontextual. So, the focus stays on the skill thatâ€™s being asked for, rather than reading comprehension skills.
Application and
explanation
 â€śApplicationâ€ť questions are designed to get students applying mathematical tools to real world problems and interpreting the results in context. Many of these questions will require more than one skill to answer, and may be crosstopic. Perfect for exam practice and preparation.
