Modified Mathematics

Subject Description

Students, parents and the teacher need to all agree that this course is a good match to your child’s needs.

Students in this class spend a large proportion of the course studying the basics of the 5 dimensions of Mathematics in preparation for life skills.

Students in this class do not continue with the study of Mathematics Units 1 to 4 at Years 11 and 12. This course is a suitable preparation for Numeracy Units in VCAL.

Level 10 achievement standard

By the end of Level 10, students recognise the connection between simple and compound interest. They solve problems involving linear equations and inequalities. They make the connections between algebraic and graphical representations of relations. Students solve surface area and volume problems relating to composite solids. They recognise the relationships between parallel and perpendicular lines. Students apply deductive reasoning to proofs and numerical exercises involving plane shapes. They compare data sets by referring to the shapes of the various data displays. They describe bivariate data where the independent variable is time. Students describe statistical relationships between two continuous variables. They evaluate statistical reports.

Students expand binomial expressions and factorise monic quadratic expressions. They find unknown values after substitution into formulas. They perform the four operations with simple algebraic fractions. Students solve simple quadratic equations and pairs of simultaneous equations. They use triangle and angle properties to prove congruence and similarity. Students use trigonometry to calculate unknown angles in right-angled triangles. Students list outcomes for multistep chance experiments and assign probabilities for these experiments. They calculate quartiles and interquartile ranges.
