- Further study Stage 2 Mathematical Methods
Stage 2 Specialist Mathematics
Through the use of functions, their derivatives, and integrals, and by mathematically modelling physical processes, students develop a deep understanding of the physical world through a sound knowledge of relationships involving rates of change. Students use statistics to describe and analyse phenomena that involve uncertainty and variation.
Mathematics at Stage 1 builds on the mathematical knowledge, understanding, and skills that students have developed in Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability during Year 10.
Stage 1 Mathematics is organised into topics that broaden students’ mathematical experience, and provide a variety of contexts for incorporating mathematical arguments and problem-solving. The topics provide a blending of algebraic and geometric thinking. In this subject there is a progression of content, applications, and level of sophistication and abstraction.
Stage 1 Specialist Mathematics must be undertaken concurrently with Stage 1 Mathematical Methods. These courses consist of the following twelve topics:
Assessment at Stage 1 is school based. The following assessment types enable students to demonstrate their learning in Stage 1 Mathematics:
There is also a formative examination which will be used to place students in the appropriate course/s in the next semester.
Students who achieve a C grade or better in this subject meet the NTCET compulsory 10-credit numeracy requirement
Students and their families are encouraged to download the Darwin High School Compass app to their smart phone/tablet device. Compass app allows you to stay up to date with announcements and events, complete a range of e-forms for student absences and excursions and easily contact us via phone or email direct from the app.
