The Year 8 Mathematics programme is based on the content in the Australian Mathematics Curriculum. This course will have a strong focus on number, measurement and basic algebraic skills. Topics covered will include integers, ratios and rates, area, volume, angle properties, Pythagoras’ Theorem, probability and statistics, straight line graphs and basic algebraic skills. Students will utilise skills developed in these topics to learn about Mathematics and how it is used in decision making and problem solving. They will be exposed to both practical and abstract situations, and will develop as independent learners.
Students will be assigned to one of four courses dependent upon their Year 7 result. The Advanced course is intended for those students with an aptitude for mathematics, Intermediate A for those students of average to above average mathematical ability, Intermediate B is a general mathematics programme and the Foundation course is for those students who require the work to be at a much slower pace and who need more individual attention.
