Mathematics
Upper School
Year 12 In Year 12, students can choose an appropriate Mathematics subject relative to their capabilities and interests. Both ATAR and NONATAR pathways are available. NONATAR 1D/E Mathematics ATAR 2C/D Mathematics 3A/B Mathematics 3C/D Mathematics 3C/D Mathematics Specialist Those highly able students are able to choose two Mathematics units in Year 12. They will study both 3C/D Mathematics and 3C/D Mathematics Specialist. Year 11 In Year 11, students can choose an appropriate Mathematics subject relative to their capabilities and interests. Both ATAR and GENERAL pathways are available. GENERAL Foundations (only for those students who have not passed OLNA) Essential ATAR Applications Methods Specialist Those highly able students are able to choose two mathematics units in Year 11. They will study both Methods and Specialist. Although Mathematics is not compulsory in Years 11 and 12, there are very few students who do not choose to further their Mathematical knowledge. We are very proud of this, as concern is often raised in the broader community that students are not studying higher level mathematics in post compulsory schooling. 

Lower School
Year 10
Students in Year 10 choose their subjects based on recommendation from their Year 9 teachers and their track record in Maths assessments. In First Semester students study one of Maths In Society, Functions and Algebra I or Functions and Algebra II. In Second Semester the Learning Area offers courses that prepare students for their Year 11 courses. The courses on offer are Pre Foundations, Pre Essentials, Pre Applications and Pre Methods. Early in Second Semester Year 10 students make their selections for Upper School based on their First Semester results. Year 10 students are assessed through tests, investigations and examinations.
Years 9
Mathematics is a compulsory subject in Year 9 and students study Maths for five periods a week. Classes are organised in order to group students of similar ability. Students are placed in an Accelerated, General or Modified class based on their Year 8 results. Year 9 students are assessed through tests, investigations and where appropriate projects.
Year 8
All Year 8 students study Mathematics for five periods a week. Students are grouped with those of similar ability as shown in their Year 7 results. The levels are called Accelerated, General and Modified. Year 8 students complete most of their assessment through tests, but investigations and projects are also used where appropriate.
Year 7
All Year 7 students study Mathematics for four periods a week. These periods are used in classroom instruction to assess student’s primary mathematics knowledge, develop their basic number skills and prepare them for a Year 8 Australian Curriculum. Year 7 students complete most of their assessment through tests, but investigations are also used where appropriate.
Students of Mathematics participate in a variety of other associated activities:
