The Year 9 Mathematics program is based on the content in the Australian Mathematics Curriculum.
Students will be assigned to one of four courses dependent upon their Year 8 results.
- The Advanced course is designed to cater for those students with an aptitude for mathematics and abstract thinking.
- The Intermediate A course is for those students of average to above average mathematical ability
- The Intermediate B is a general mathematics program written for students with an average mathematical whom work better at a slower pace.
- The Modified course caters for those students who require the work to be at a much slower pace and who require more individual attention.
Students in the Advanced, Intermediate A and Intermediate B courses cover a selection of topics which may include Pythagoras’ Theorem, trigonometric ratios, linear and quadratic functions, index laws, surface area and volume, congruency and similarity in figures and probability and statistics. The Modified students concentrate on learning and developing basic mathematical skills that will lead to success in mathematical concepts evident in real life contexts.
