Teacher in Charge: Mrs C. Newson
Year 11 Mathematics is compulsory for all students.
We offer 3 different courses and will work with you to select the course that best meets your learning needs to 2021. You will be advised of the course we think best fits your needs before you have your interview with your tutor teacher. If you have any concerns about your class please contact Mrs Newson via email.
Year 11 Maths Advanced: This course is suited to a large number of students who have completed Year 10 Numeracy, alongside a junior Mathematics Course. You will learn a range of topics that will provide credits towards NCEA numeracy at lead to either Level 2 Mathematics Advanced or Level 2 Mathematics. This course does have an external exam and all students will work with the intention of entering at least one of the two standards offered here. Many students from Maths Advanced will enter both externals. There is also the opportunity to complete the Number Achivement standard worth 4 credits for those students who did not complete this in Year 10. These are internally assessed credits.
8 Credits External (2 standards)
13 Credits Internal (4 standards) + 4 Credits Number
Career Pathways: Health sector, finance and property, science, engineering, education, social sciences, business, media, animal care, government, and law.
Year 11 Mathematics: You will learn a range of topics that will provide credits towards NCEA numeracy and lead to Level 2 Mathematics. This course does not have an external exam and is suited to students continuing with their learning in Mathematics who do not necessarily need an algebraic focus for their intended career pathway. This course has a long term pathway of Year 13 Mathematics, in which students are able to achieve the currently required 14 credits as a UE approved subject through interally assessed standards.
Internal: 6 standards (19 credits) plus one addtional (3)
Career Pathways: Hospitality, tourism, recreation, retail and personal services, arts, media, animal care, safety, farming, fishing, and forestry.
Year 11 Mathematics Foundation: This course is designed to provide a pathway for students who to achieve the NCEA Numeracy requirements. Students will complete a variety of learning with a strong emphasis on basic number calculations, measurement, and statistical calcuations and interpretations. The achievement standards are taught at a slightly slower pace and students are given lots of practical opportunities to undestand their learning. This course is suited to students who have found Year 10 Numeracy and/or their Mathematics course(s) very challenging. For most students it will not lead to a Year 12 Mathematics course.
Internal: up to 6 standards (18 credits)
The achievement standards attached to this course below are an indication of some of the internally assessed standards you could be offered in your course.
The two exteranlly assessed standards are only for the students who take Mathematics Advanced.
Course Contribution: nil
Stationery Requirements: 2 x 1E5 or 1J5, Scientific calculator, ruler.
Students who take Mathematics Advanced have the option of using a graphical calculator, this is recommended for students who know they will be studying Advanced Mathematics in Year 12 .
