NCEA Level 3 Mathematics With Statistics

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr C. Walton

Recommended Prior Learning

Recommendation from teacher of Level 2 Mathematics and 14 L2 credits which must include 1) AS91256 or AS91269; 2) AS91265 or AS91264 or one from either of the two English standards AS91098 or AS91099; and 3) the external AS91267.  A Merit result on the L2 Probability External is required if you don't meet the credit count pre-requisite from your L2 course.

The course covers an introduction to probability theory and to the analysis of data, in preparation for University level statistics papers. Analysis of data will require students to complete research and write analytical reports. These reports are generally 3-5 pages long and require a good level of literacy. The course is assessed through Level 3 achievement standards. Entry for the external achievement standards is dependent on passing the appropriate formative assessment.

A student will be withdrawn from a standard if the teacher is not confident that the achievement of the standard is within the reach of the student or there is no evidence of the student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.
