Integrated Learning - Mathematics

2ILG

The Integrated Learning in Numeracy course is designed specifically to cater for students of diverse literacy skills and mathematical abilities.

About the subject

Integrated Learning Numeracy and Integrated Learning PE can both be used to contribute to the Stage 2 compulsory units of the NTCET. Only 20 credits of study from Integrated Learning can contribute to an ATAR. If an ATAR is required students must study at least three other Stage 2 subjects from other learning areas, complying with relevant counting restrictions and precluded combination rules.

Students undertaking Integrated Learning will develop their literacy skills and mathematical abilities, however with greater emphasis placed on the connections between different subjects. It is the aim of this course to move students away from learning by memorisation and reciting to understanding the connections between subject areas.

Course content

The course is presented in a contextual situation and aims to enhance the students’ opportunities for success in the work environment. The key learning areas focus in the Integrated Learning includes:

Key Area 1: Developing the Capability for Communication:

The students will have the opportunity to develop their capability for communication by liaising with the wider community such as the permaculture experts that will help them with the garden as well as other community members.

Key Area 2: Developing the Capability for Citizenship

The students will have the opportunity to develop their capability for citizenship by being part of a garden and connecting with the community through the garden.

Key Area 5: Developing the Capability for Learning

The students will be developing their capability for learning by learning new information regarding permaculture and learning new areas of ICT such as multi-modal presentation.

Assessment

Students demonstrate evidence of their learning through the following assessment types:

School-based AssessmentWeighting

Performance Standards

The Integrated Learning Mathematics Subject Outline includes performance standards, which describe five levels of achievement that are reported with the grades A to E at the student’s completion of the subject.

The school-based assessments will be graded with reference to the performance standards.
