Mathematics is a broad and challenging intellectual pursuit and is also the universal language that helps us to describe and make sense of the world. Students who are numerate - those who possess well-developed mathematical skills and the confidence to apply them – are best equipped to engage in all aspects of modern life. Indeed, good numeracy has been described as “the best protection against unemployment, low wages and poor health.” Andreas Schleicher, OECD

Technology is used strategically to enhance instruction and investigation, stimulate student interest, individualise tuition and expedite feedback. The computer–based training system, Maths Online, is a key support to classroom teaching. In addition to providing content mapped to the Australian Curriculum, it contains video-audio lessons perfect for home study.

Students in Year 9 and 10 can expect to be introduced to the Casio Classpad Graphing Calculator. Aside from being a valuable aide to classroom learning, familiarity with the graphing calculator is advantageous for any student intending to study a pre-tertiary mathematics subject in Year 11 or 12.

Elective courses in Years 9 and 10:

Mathematics Applied: This course is designed for students who intend to consolidate and extend their understanding of Mathematics. This subject will both support and supplement content from core Year 9 ACARA Mathematics classes and introduce students to Year 10 and college level content.

Mathematics Advanced: This subject is designed for students who intend to undertake a Level 3 Mathematics course in Year 11 or 12.
