MATHEMATICS

Mathematics is a mandatory course that is studied in each of Years 7–10 with at least 400 hours to be completed by the end of Year 10. 

Course Description:

Mathematics is used to identify, describe and apply patterns and relationships. It provides a precise means of communication and is a powerful tool for solving problems both within and beyond mathematics. In addition to its practical applications, the study of mathematics is a valuable pursuit in its own right, providing opportunities for originality, challenge and leisure.

Stage 4: Year 7 and Year 8

Our Year 7 classes are developed by the analysis of Primary School results including the UNSW Gifted and Talented testing, with the top classes classified as Enrichment classes. Year 8 classes are graded.

Stage 5: Year 9 and Year 10

There are three sub-stages of Stage 5, Stages 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3:

  • Stage 5.1 is designed to assist in meeting the needs of students who are continuing to work towards the achievement of Stage 4 outcomes when they enter Year 9. 
  •  Stage 5.2 builds on the content of Stage 5.1 and is designed to assist in meeting the needs of students who have achieved Stage 4 outcomes by the end of Year 8. Achieving 5.2 Outcomes is recommended as minimum preparation for Stage 6 Mathematics Standard and mathematical understandings that are applicable to a range of VET courses.
  •  Stage 5.3 builds on the content of Stage 5.2 and is designed to assist in meeting the needs of students who have achieved Stage 4 outcomes before the end of Year 8. Achieving 5.3 Outcomes is recommended as minimum preparation for Stage 6 Mathematics Advanced.
