Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr M. Plant

This is an academic course which requires a high level of algebraic manipulation. Mathematical process skills such as problem solving, reasoning and communicating mathematical ideas are applied. Students develop the skills, concepts, understandings, and attitudes which will enable them to cope confidently with the mathematics of everyday life and in the work environment. Students must take this course if they plan to take 13MAS or 13MAC in Year 13.


Pathway

Level 3 Mathematics with Calculus, Level 3 Mathematics with Statistics

Good grades in the Algebra and Calculus units are required from this course for entry into Year 13 Calculus.

A good grade in the Probability unit, and some skill with Algebra, is required for entry into Year 13 Statistics.

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Each student is required to have a Casio fx-9750G plus graphics calculator and $25 for a Revision guide and Fold-Out Notes.
