Level 2 Mathematics with Statistics

L2MAS
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs P. Blud

What will I learn and how will I learn?
Level 2 Mathematics with Statistics is a 17 credit course covering Algebra and Probability.  It is designed to lead into Level 3 Statistics. 

Success in this course is largely dependent on the students' commitment to the work required in class and their homework. The Mathematical skills necessary for this course are learnt through practice and more practice. It is NOT sufficient to do a few problems in class and then to stop. Every night after Mathematics, they need to go over the work that they did in the classroom.

Students will be given important information sheets during the year that they will need to refer to from time to time. They are strongly advised to buy a clear file and use it to store this information. Students 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 department has some calculators available for purchase at very competitive prices. Check with the class teacher or Mrs Blud.
