The Australian Mathematics Curriculum ensures mathematical skills are developed through increasing exposure of students to four Proficiency Strands: Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning.
Through a range of inquiry based experiences and active student participation in real world problem solving; this curriculum will enable students to become selfmotivated confident mathematical learners.
Junior curriculum
The junior curriculum provides students with essential mathematical knowledge in four major Content Strands:
 Number and algebra
 Measurement and geometry
 Statistics and probability
 Financial mathematics
Year 10 links to Year 11/12 subjects
All students studying the Year 10 Mathematics course are eligible to study Essential Mathematics in Years 11 and 12. Students obtaining at least a C5 in this course are encouraged to study General Mathematics in Years 11/12, and students achieving at least a B5 in this course are encouraged to study Mathematics Methods in Year’s 11 & 12.
Year 10 topics of study
 Assessment
 Career pathways

The curriculum also provides students with essential mathematical knowledge in three major Content Strands:  Number and algebra
 Measurement and geometry
 Statistics and probability
 Students will be assessed continually throughout their work units via a range of techniques including:  mathematical reports
 supervised tests
 extended modelling and problem solving tasks based on real world concepts.
 Mathematics is essential in all careers ranging from everyday numeracy skills such as dealing with money, application to technical trades and higher order applications such as those involved in science and medicine.

Tutoring
Semester 1 and 2, 2020
Maths tutoring is provided free of charge by the maths faculty staff. All students and parents are encouraged to make use of tutoring opportunities.
There is no need to contact the school, students just need to arrive on time. Students must bring their work and equipment.
