General Mathematics | Stage 2 in 2017

Stage 2 General Mathematics

Stage 2 General Mathematics will be taught for the first time in 2017.

General Mathematics extends students' mathematical skills in ways that apply to practical problem solving. A problem-based approach is integral to the development of mathematical models and the associated key concepts in the topics. Topics cover a diverse range of applications of mathematics, including personal financial management, the statistical investigation process, modelling using linear and non-linear functions, and discrete modelling using networks and matrices. 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- or better will meet the numeracy requirement of the SACE.
