MATHEMATICS - CORE SUBJECT
At this year level, students are required to demonstrate their understanding of: number, algebra, measurement, geometry, statistics and probability. Students need to be able to fluently use a variety of problem solving strategies and validate their answers.
By the end of Year 10, students are expected to have successfully completed all set work for the year, including: financial maths, algebra, measurement, linear relationships, trigonometry, statistics, geometry, non-linear relationships and probability.
A variety of teaching strategies will be implemented, providing students with the maximum opportunity to reach their full potential.
Students will be expected to: complete all set work in class for authentication purposes; develop effective study habits by completing homework on a regular basis; and to further develop calculator competencies when solving complex equations.
STUDENTS WILL BE ALLOCATED TO EITHER ADVANCED MATHEMATICS OR GENERAL MATHEMATICS AFTER DISCUSSION WITH STAFF, PARENTS/CARER'S AND STUDENTS.
Mathematics is designed to provide a differentiated curriculum to cater for individual student abilities.
This subject is a pathway to VCE General Mathematics and VCE Foundation Mathematics.
Mathematics is suitable for students who have achieved excellent results in year 9 mathematics. Students are expected to work at an accelerated pace and complete the entire maths course for Year 10.
This subject is a pathway to VCE Mathematical Methods, VCE Specialist Mathematics and VCE General Mathematics.
