Every Year 10 student at Scotch College will study Mathematics. Based on individual needs and Year 9 results, students are carefully placed into one of three discrete Mathematics courses; 10A, 10 or 10B. Each of these courses has a separate assessment programme and textbook.
The 10A course is designed for those students who wish to pursue further studies in Mathematics and other Mathematics specialty degrees such as Engineering. As a result, it appropriately prepares students for the study of the Mathematics Methods and Mathematics Specialist in WACE and the Higher Level Diploma Mathematics courses.
The 10 course is designed to expose students to some of the required Algebra and Functions content to allow them to keep their options open for Year 11 and 12 whilst allowing success in Year 10. As a result, it prepares students for Methods or Applications in WACE or the Standard Level Diploma Mathematics courses.
The 10B course is designed to give students all the necessary understanding and skills required for success in Mathematics Essentials and Mathematics Applications in WACE and Standard Level Applications and Interpretations in the Diploma Programme.
The 10A, 10 and 10B courses all align with the Australian Curriculum.
The following learning skills will also be explicitly taught throughout the courses and will give students the opportunity to advance from Novice to Leader.
