Subject description
Mathematics provides students with essential mathematical skills and knowledge in number, algebra, measurement, geometry, statistics and probability.
Students in Year 9 continue to work with the Maths Pathway program as an additional tool to the current year level curriculum.
Students in Year 10 will be completing a preparatory course to senior mathematics. They will have a choice between the Mathematical Methods prep course and the General Mathematics prep course. Results in year 9 will be used to identify the most suitable preparatory course for students.
Out of class requirements
Students in year 9 and 10 are required to access the learning place for their course materials. The content is broken into leaning goals, and each learning goal has resources that need to be completed by students. The resources are PPTs, worksheets, worksheet answers, and online quizzes.
Students in year 9 are also required to complete their maths pathway modules with a minimum of three modules per week.
What is important for this subject
Students will require access to a device to complete their maths pathway modules and access the learning place. Both are web based and can be accessed from home. A scientific calculator will also be required.
