The Sigma Workbook 'AS 1.5 Measurement' is a write-on student workbook covering the mathematics students must understand to gain AchievedMerit, or Excellence in the internally assessed Achievement Standard 1.5 – ‘Apply measurement in solving problems’ (AS91030).

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.
