Level 2 Mathematics (Internal)

Course Description

Level 2 Mathematics (Internal) is designed for students who would find it difficult to work at the speed and level of difficulty required to achieve in the Level 2 Mathematics (External) course. 

This course contains a minimal amount of algebra content; however, it does provide students with the opportunity to get Level 2 credits in a highly valued subject. It consists of 7 achievement standards worth a total of 17 credits. The majority of standards are internally assessed, with one external standard – ‘Apply probability methods’, worth 4 credits, which will be assessed externally in an end of year examination. All other standards will be assessed in class immediately on completion of the unit of work.

*Students who plan to take Level 3 Statistics or Calculus in Year 13 should not take this course.

*Students who select this course may be placed into Level 2 Mathematics (External) instead at the discretion of the Head of Faculty Mathematics.


Contributions and Equipment/Stationery
