**Teacher in Charge: ** Mrs P. Blud

**What will I learn and how will I learn?**Success in this course is largely dependent on regular attendance at school, commitment to the work required in class and homework. The Mathematical skills necessary for this course are learned through practise and more practise. It is not sufficient to do a few problems in class and then to stop. Every night after Mathematics, students need to go over the work that they did in the classroom.

During the year, students receive many pieces of paper. They will all contain important information that they will need to refer to from time to time. Students are strongly advised to buy a clear file and use it to store this information. They should also keep all their assignments, tests, exams etc as they are all very useful for study purposes.

A scientific calculator is **essential**. While the school has sets available for use at school, students need their own for homework and other out of school activities. The school uses a Jastek JasCS1. The department has some calculators available for purchase at very competitive prices. Check with the teacher or Mrs Blud.

**Conditions of Assessment**Some topics are internally assessed

**Resubmissions and Further Assessment Opportunities**In some internal topics they will get one (

Currently, assessments are being offered in the following standards **ONLY**:

- MATS 1.1 - Apply numeric reasoning in solving problems

- MATS 1.5 - Apply measurement in solving problems.

They will be assessed on 22 credits, but students' previous results (Year 10) will be added and, therefore, 27 credits will be available the following year.
