Mathematics

At Year 7 - 10 the Victorian Curriculum Mathematics course is followed, where students develop skills in number, algebra, measurement, geometry, probability and statistics. Students develop mathematical problem solving skills, investigate mathematical relationships and learn to use technology manipulate data and visualise problems. At Year 9, an Extension Mathematics elective is offered, which is designed to expose students to several areas of mathematics not present in the core curriculum.

The Casio Classpad CAS is introduced to students at Year 10 and then used continually in Year 11 & 12.

The VCE subjects offered are Units 1 & 2 Foundation Mathematics, General Mathematics, Mathematical Methods and Specialist Mathematics, and Units 3 & 4 Further Mathematics, Mathematical Methods, Specialist Mathematics and Algorithmics (HESS) are offered.
