NCEA Accounting - A Beginning: Level 1 Year 11 Workbook

By | Copyright Year:2011 | ISBN-13: 9780170211062

Research has shown that deep learning is enhanced by shortening the time between the introduction of new material and student interaction with this material. It is therefore important that students have an early opportunity to apply what they have learnt and gain mastery of it.

The student workbook contains all the questions from the text together with answer space, following the format of the external examinations. It has been designed to enable students to experience early success with simple exercises by having these partially worked. This success gives students the confidence to progress through to more challenging examples on their own. Use of the workbook enables students to focus on concepts and procedures immediately without the necessity of learning a particular format by heart before they can begin. Over time, format becomes second nature as students develop a conceptual understanding of the purpose of each exercise.

The use of workbooks also provides more time for students to interact with the subject matter itself and hence offers greater opportunity for them to master basic concepts through practice. It is suggested that students should not destroy pages when errors are made; rather than rewriting an entire question, a correction in a different coloured ink will often suffice. The student may then proceed to a new task which provides the opportunity to relearn the point which has been missed. The corrected exercises provide a focus for revision and a useful resource for independent study.
