Teacher in Charge: Dr D. Muck
The main objective of this course is for the students to gain a good understanding of mathematics at Levels 7 of the New Zealand Curriculum and to master the Statistics and Probability Achievement Standards during the year. This course is intended for students who may require mathematics as part of their course work at University or students who require a sound Level 2 mathematics course for entry into trade training. The course also gives students an opportunity to study Mathematics with Statistics at Year 13, which gives students an alternative pathway to attain further Mathematical skills and knowledge in order to fulfill on going course requirements at tertiary level or provide a sound mathematical basis to enter trade training.
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.
12 credits of NCEA level 1 Mathematics including passes in both AS 1.1 and AS 1.2, AS 1.5, and 1.10. Individual cases may be discussed with HoD.
