Subject Description

Teacher in Charge:

This course continues to develop the mathematical skills and understanding from the previous year's work. This course includes new concepts such as Calculus and Probability Distributions.

This course will continue to develop your problem solving and logical thinking skills, which are needed to be able to solve unfamiliar practical and mathematical problems.

This course covers all the strands of Mathematics, Number, Measurement, Geometry, Algebra, Statistics and Mathematical Processes. The course will be assessed by both internal and external assessments. 


Pathway

NCEA Level 3 Mathematics With Calculus, NCEA Level 3 Mathematics With Statistics

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

A scientific calculator or graphing calculator is essential. You are seriously disadvantaged if you do not have a graphing calculator. The current recommended graphing calculator is the Casio Fx9750gii.


Recommended Prior Learning

At least 16 credits in NCEA Level One Mathematics, with a least 8 being from externally accessed standards. The Algebra Achievement Standards 90147 and 90148 will be required, with Merit in these two being preferred.
