Course Information

The Mathematics faculty provides an academic, supportive environment that encourages students to achieve to their highest level. This is done by providing the students with course options which best suit their needs and a range of extra curricula activities in and out of the class to promote interest in the subject. Students are challenged through enrichment and extension material and engaging curriculum programs. Technology is regularly used to assist Mathematics teaching and learning.

In the junior school, students are provided with opportunities to develop their interest in Mathematics through activities such as the Australian Mathematics Competition, the Australasian Problem Solving Mathematical Olympiad, the Mathematics Challenge and the Enrichment Stage of the Mathematics Challenge.

Students in Year 11 can choose from Mathematics Extension I, Advanced and Standard.

In Year 12, a further option of Mathematics Extension 2 is offered to those students who have studied Extension 1 in Year 11 and demonstrated that they have a high ability and keen interest in extending their learning in Mathematics.
