Level 3 Mathematics with Flexibility

Subject Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr J. Thomson

This is a Level 3 Mathematics and Statistics course designed to give students complete flexibility over which standards they study. At the start of the year, students will decide what they want to study, depending on their own individual pathways or abilities. They can then follow that programme entirely at their own pace and will sit assessments only when they and their teacher think they are ready.

A Flipped Learning model is followed where students will learn from a combination of videos, teacher support, workbooks, group activities ... whichever best suits their strongest learning style. A specialist teacher will always be available, to provide one on one help and advice.

The Standards which are covered in the Level 3 Calculus, Statistics and Mathematics courses are available here and a maximum of 18 credits is recommended. (Students who are aiming for a "Calculus necessary" course at University, will need to do slightly more). This course is intended for any student who is ready to study Maths at Level 3.


Subject Overview

Term 1
All students design their own programme and will spend some time learning how to approach and organise their workload. A learning programme will be designed aiming at a maximum of 18 credits. However, students seeking entry to a University Calculus course will be directed towards the standards they require which will, in fact, exceed 18 credits.

Recommended Prior Learning

Students must have achieved some credits from Level 2 Mathematics, it would be unrealistic to attempt any Level 3 Mathematics standards unless you have experienced success at Level 2.


Approximate Costs and Equipment/Stationery

A device will be needed, especially for Statistics. For certain papers, a Graphics Calculator is needed - this can be purchased through school for about $100. Students may elect to buy write on workbooks for some of the standards, they usually cost about $7 each.

Assessment Information

Students choose their own programme and this will determine their balance of Internal and External assessments.
