Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs P. Jager

Recommended Prior Learning


You will already be working at Curriculum Level 5A or above in your Year 10 Mathematics course. 


Mathematics Level 1

This is a course for motivated people who like Mathematics and problem solving and who want to achieve at high levels. You’ll learn mathematics in a different way - making big links between Patterns, Graphs, Equations and Algebra. 

We will start each situation in an interesting real-world situation and then make powerful generalisations to abstract ideas. Working both individually and in teams, you will be practising and learning problem solving strategies that will help in a number of different subjects. 


Optional Standards:

AS 91027 Algebra
