Teacher in Charge: Ms S. Scott
Topics covered are a mixture of Level 3 standards from calculus and statistics. Topics may include Bivariate Data Investigation, Critical Paths, Probability Concepts, Systems of Equations, Linear Programming and Time Series.
Term 1
Linear Algebra followed by Bivariate Analysis
Term 2
Simultaneous Equations followed by Time Series
Term 3
Critical Paths and Probability Concepts
Term 4
Probability Concepts. It is highly recommended that students purchase the D and D booklet for revision in preparation for sitting the final NCEA External examination in November.
It is expected that students will have their own pens, pencils, rulers, erasers, 1E5 or 1E8, and a graphics calculator. It is strongly recommended that they purchase 3 workbooks: Walker Maths Time Series, Walker Maths Bivariate Analysis and Walker Maths Probability Concepts. It is also highly recommended that students purchase the D and D booklet for revision in term 4 in preparation for sitting the final NCEA External examination in November.
Students need to have Level One Numeracy and Literacy. Students without Level Two Literacy will likely struggle with this course as it involves writing two 1800 word reports.
This course is eligible for subject endorsement.
This course is approved for University Entrance.
