Description
Ace your Year 9 Equations and Linear Relationships exams with this 128page exam workbook!
Do you worry about your child’s Maths exam skills? Many students are caught offguard by questions that appear in exams that they haven’t seen before. Does your child struggle to use classroom skills in their exams? They’re not alone. Students often struggle to translate what they learn from class and school textbooks to their exams.
Conventional school textbooks teach course content to give students a sound knowledge and understanding of key fundamental concepts. But for exams, this isn’t enough.
Why is this not enough to achieve exam success at school? At school, students are required to:
 Demonstrate extensive knowledge and skills
 Apply Maths concepts to unfamiliar questions/situations
 Use sophisticated multistep reasoning
 Exhibit excellent problemsolving skills
Here’s how we get students exam ready!
Matrix has 20 years of experience preparing thousands of students from Year 7 through Year 12 to ace their exams and HSC. We’ve drawn on this experience and track record of successful teaching to create the Year 9 Maths Max Series^{TM } Volume 2. Help your child prepare for their next exam with the knowledge and processes we’ve developed.
The Year 9 Maths Max Series^{TM } Volume 2 is not your typical Year 9 Maths Revision Workbook. This workbook is designed for exam preparation, as well as providing students with the opportunity to further develop and practise fundamental concepts.
When students use this Maths revision workbook correctly, they will gain significant advantages in their school exams.
The Year 9 Maths Max Series^{TM } Volume 2 empowers students by:
 Giving them the confidence to take control of their learning
 Exposing students to examstyle questions to reduce the chance of encountering unfamiliar problems

 Improving their skills by sharing the exam and problemsolving techniques not published in regular textbooks.
How to use the Year 9 Maths Max Series^{TM} Volume 2 for Maths exam success
Exam success comes from doing, not just knowing. This book is designed for students who have a sound understanding of the key year 9 concepts of:
 Equations
 Linear relationships
You need more than a sound understanding of these concepts. Students need effective practice to succeed in exams. The Year 9 Maths Max Series^{TM } Volume 2 will get you exam ready.
Students should only use this Year 9 Maths revision workbook after gaining a sound knowledge and understanding of the key concepts of the Year 9 Mathematics course content for Equations and Linear Relationships. This Maths revision workbook will effectively prepare students for school exams when the following steps are closely followed:
Step 1: Review theory content
At the beginning of each topic, there is a concise summary of the key concepts. Be sure to read and understand it before attempting any questions.
Step 2: Study the examples and their solutions to gain clarity
The examples expose students to various examstyle questions. The stepbystep worked solutions for each example provides clear multistep reasoning to enhance your understanding and provide a structure for maximising marks in exams.
Step 3: Attempt practice questions to improve problemsolving skills
Questions are organised in a progressive manner to facilitate independent learning.
If you have difficulty, the ‘NOTES TO STUDENTS’ section provides you with hints to encourage problemsolving without referring to the solution.
The ‘LEVEL’ of difficulty is a useful tool to assess your ability to solve new, unseen and difficult problems.

I liked the layout of the book and found it to be quite an interesting way to revise and study for exams. At the beginning of each section, the concise summaries were very helpful to understand key concepts. There were various examples for different types of questions which broadened my exposure to the type of examstyle questions to be expected. The stepbystep worked solutions provided with the theory also helped enhance my understanding.
