Giles County Board of Education Mathematics The Terra Nova Complete Battery for Mathematics is "designed to help students show what they know and can do. Many questions call for critical thinking, reasoning, and problem solving. Questions allow students to use different strategies and to take individual paths to a solution. Realworld topics engage students' interest, and the extensive use of graphics reduces the need for explanatory text and provides a supportive context. Themes group items into meaningful configurations, and items are generally sequenced to promote initial success so that students will continue with confidence to more challenging questions.
