Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Walton
This course will provide students with a broad mathematical curriculum, providing a pathway into a Level 2 Statistics or the Level 2 Numeracy course.
A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student attempting the assessment.
NCEA Level 2 Mathematics for Numeracy, NCEA Level 2 Mathematics for Social and Health Sciences
Contributions and Equipment/StationeryIt is recommended that students have a scientific calculator, preferably a Casio FX82 or a Casio graphics calculator. Basic mathematical equipment, i.e. ruler and exercise book; and the appropriate homework book, approximately $20.00.
By recommendation from Year 10 mathematics teacher.
This course is eligible for subject endorsement.
