Mathematics Level 1

MAT101
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs Jager

Mathematics 101

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
AS 91032 Right Angled Triangles 



Pathway

Mathematics Level 2, Statistics Level 2

Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Workbooks may be needed for some Standards. The cost for these is approx. $6 each.
A tablet or similar device is highly recommended for this course.


Recommended Prior Learning

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