Mathematics

Mathematics is required for a range of trades and tertiary courses such as nursing, psychology, economics and the sciences.  Most students choose Achievement Standard courses including NCEA 2 Mathematics or Statistics, then NCEA 3 Calculus and Statistics.

Mathematics is compulsory for students in Years 9, 10 and 11.

You will be placed into the appropriate course according to your results this year, with particular emphasis on your NCEA Assessments and End of Year Examination. (See entry requirements for these courses)

Students cannot progress to another course in Mathematics without gaining the entry requirement from the previous course.

If you are in Year 12 or 13, you can continue with the course you have been placed in or, if you have already gained Numeracy and/or University Entrance, there is no requirement to continue with Mathematics.

We operate a mentoring programme with Victoria University for Maori and Pacific Island students.
