Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs M. Darroch

Year 11 Level One Maths Course. This is a mathematics rich course where learners will be able to delve deeper into areas that interest them and use different techniques to find solutions to the problems around them. Whether they focus on financial, spatial, algebraic or geometric reasoning techniques. This course includes a practical element involving taking measurements and creating scale drawings. It flows nicely from the 1MATS21 Semester 1 course.
