Total of 3 Credits - Internally Assessed

The Sigma Workbook 'AS 1.4 - Linear Algebra' is a write-on student workbook covering the mathematics students must understand to gain AchievedMerit, or Excellence in the internally assessed Achievement Standard 1.4 – ‘Apply linear algebra in solving problems’ (AS 91029).

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 internal 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 :

  • Solving Linear Equations     
  • Solving Inequations     
  • Forming an Equation   
  • Equations for Lines     
  • Linear Problems     
  • Using Formulas      
  • Plotting a Graph     
  • Plotting Lines     
  • Interpreting Graphs      
  • Features of Line Graphs     
  • Writing an Equation for a Line
  • Parallel and Crossing Lines     
  • Solving Simultaneous Equations     
  • Linear Patterns
  • Solving Linear Problems     
  • Inequations with Two Variables
  • Linear programming     

The Sigma Workbook 'AS 1.4 Linear Algebra' 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 internal assessment of Achievement Standard 1.4.

Once completed, 'AS 1.4 Linear Algebra' 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.
