General Mathematics

General Mathematics extends students' mathematical skills in ways that apply to practical problem solving. Topics cover a diverse range of applications of mathematics, including personal financial management, the statistical investigation process, modelling using linear and non-linear functions, networks and matrices, and discrete models. Successful completion of General Mathematics at Stage 2 prepares students for entry to tertiary courses requiring a non-specialised background in mathematics.

Students who complete this subject with a C grade or better will meet the numeracy requirement of the SACE.
