Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Dr D. Muck

This course is intended for students who have a sound knowledge of basic mathematical skills and concepts, are critical thinkers, enjoy mathematics and possess an aptitude for this subject. This course is also for students who intend to study higher academic mathematics. Students will be assessed on the application of knowledge of mathematics from level 6 of the New Zealand Curriculum, however you are reminded that knowledge from level 5 or lower is also expected, e.g. graphing knowledge within the algebra assessment. In any of the level 1 external assessments, candidates may be expected to demonstrate evidence through a simple investigation. This may involve the investigation of an algebraic, statistical, or geometric relationship, and begin with a word problem or situation.


Equipment/Stationery

For each lesson, every student is expected to bring to class their exercise book, pencil, blue or black biro, red biro, scientific calculator, ruler and pencil. No borrowing of equipment is allowed during assessments. All work must be done in blue or black biro, except graphs and diagrams which can be done in pencil as these are the NZQA regulations. Red biro can be used for marking.

Recommended Prior Learning

Students will need to have achieved in most Year 10 assessments (especially Algebra) with an achievement of at least Level 5 proficient in the Year 10 Algebra and Number units. Students who enter this course will be confident and capable with algebra, have strong numerical skills and enjoy the on-going challenge of mathematics.
