Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Walton
This course is based off Level 8 of mathematics in the New Zealand Curriculum with a focus on how mathematics can be applied to all areas of the ‘Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics’ (STEM) framework. The course will be run in a ‘flipped’ manner in which, with guidance, students will be able to branch out and investigate different situations.
A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student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.
12 Level 2 credits from Year 12 Mathematics (MAE, MAS, or MAN) courses.
Evidence of maintaining a complete set of class work from Level 2 course or recommendation from the teacher in charge of Level 3 Mathematics.
This course is approved for University Entrance.
