Maths Quest Maths C Year 11 for QLD 2E Solutions Manual is part of a complete Maths package which includes the Student Text, Teacher Editions, and now also supported witheBookPLUS and eGuidePLUS!

The second editions of this highly successful maths series have been updated to meet the requirements of the revision of Maths Year 11 syllabus for implementation from 2009.


  • Fully worked solutions to every question and investigation in the student textbook
  • Allows students to regularly check their understandings in class
  • Assists students to continue working if they become confused, either when they are working independently at home or if the teacher is not available to support them.
