Stage 1 Mathematics provides the foundation for further study in mathematics in Stage 2 Mathematical Methods and Stage 2 Specialist Mathematics.
The redeveloped Stage 2 Mathematical Methods (replacing Mathematical Studies) and the redeveloped Stage 2 Specialist Mathematics will be taught for the first time in 2017.
Mathematical Methods can lead to tertiary studies of, for example, economics, computer sciences, and the sciences. It prepares students for courses and careers that may involve the use of statistics, such as health or social sciences.
Specialist Mathematics can be a pathway to mathematical sciences, engineering, and physical sciences. Specialist Mathematics is designed to be studied in conjunction with Mathematical Methods.
Students who complete 10 credits of this subject with a C grade or better will meet the numeracy requirement of the SACE.
Stage 1 subject code: 1MAM10 or 1MAM20
Credits: 10 or 20
