Merrilyn Goos has a rare gift for making maths relevant and interesting for secondary school students.

A superb maths teacher and an outstanding lecturer at The University of Queensland, Dr Goos and her pre-service DipEd and BEd students have developed an exciting and innovative series of technology enriched activities for Australian upper and lower secondary maths students.

With the rapid introduction of technologies such as computers, graphics calculators and the internet into secondary maths classrooms, Techno Maths meets a growing need for challenging and practical investigations which have been trialled and proven with teachers and students in Queensland classrooms.

A CD accompanying the book contains all the activities, together with any spreadsheet files and programs mentioned in the text (CD will be posted on completion of order).
