Students should have gained Achieved or better in most Year 10 common tests and in all sections of the Year 10 exam. Students will be placed by the HOD in the Level 1 Mathematics course which most suits their background and ability.

Mathematics 101(External):

This course aims to give students the necessary mathematical and algebraic skills and background to continue with Mathematics at Level 2, as well as to further develop logical thinking and problem solving techniques.

This course is designed around the Level 1 achievement standards and Level 6 of the Mathematics Curriculum. Students are expected to sit all standards offered in these courses to be admitted into Level 2 courses.

#### Course Overview

**Term 1**

The internal standards covered this term are Multivariate Statistics and Number. We will also do some Algebra and start the Geometric Reasoning standard, which are externals.

**Term 2**

The internal standard covered this term is Linear Algebra. We will also continue with Geometric Reasoning and Algebra.

**Term 3**

This term will mainly be a focus on the Algebra content. The external for the Algebra standard will also occur at the end of this term; approximately week 9. We will also start work for the external Chance and Data.

**Term 4**

This term we will finish the work for Chance and Data.
