The Mathematics Department offers a wide range of courses catering for the individual needs of all students. All courses from Year 7 – 11 cover Number, Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics, giving the students a wide grounding in all topics.
From Year 9 all students, in consultation with parents and teachers, opt into a course of mathematics according to their ability level. At Year 12, we offer both Achievement standard and Unit standard Level 2 courses and at Year 13, there are two courses available, Statistics and Modelling and Calculus (see also senior option booklet).
In the junior school students are tested on their Numeracy ability to identify specific needs. The department encourages students to participate in Mathematics competitions, activities and extension work.
Support is offered in a number of ways: student support personnel, numeracy support, homework support where a mathematics teacher is available after school, as well as tutorials in the senior school.
