**MATHEMATICS**

Mathematics is a powerful and dynamic
discipline that has evolved within and across cultures. Our aim is to make
Mathematics an enjoyable and rewarding academic adventure by providing learning
experiences that stimulate and inspire students to engage and achieve, through
a problem solving focus that integrates technology in a range of practical
contexts.

**Subject Information**

**Years 7 - 10**

All students must take Mathematics as one
of their five core subjects. There is a summit class in each year level. The
other class groupings have students of varying levels and teachers
differentiate their teaching to cater for all learning styles and the
individual students' needs. As their progress is assessed there may be movement
between classes over the four years.

**Years 11 and 12**

Authority subjects - Mathematics A,
Mathematics B, Mathematics C. Please note it is not possible to study
Mathematics C without also studying Mathematics B.

Non-Authority Subjects â€“Prevocational

in the Year level subject handbooks in the Enrolment section.
