Mathematics with Calculus Level 2

L2MAC
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr S. Knowles

Recommended Prior Learning

A minimum of 15 credits in Level 1 Mathematics Achievement Standards, including
a Merit or better in AS1.1(Number) and AS1.2(Algebra) is strongly recommended.


The Level 2 Mathematics with Calculus course (L2MAC) is recommended for students with a sound ability in Algebra who are viewing tertiary study (or potentially a career) in the physical sciences, engineering, economics, or any field where Mathematics is used as a tool for analysis. 

L2MAC builds on the Algebraic concepts covered in Year 11 and focuses on the techniques and applications of both Algebra and Calculus, Mathematical modelling, and the development of Mathematical reasoning.

A combination of internal and external Achievement Standards, topics focus on Algebra Concepts, Calculus, Trigonometry, Graphs and Systems of Equations.



Course Overview

Term 1
Algebra (external assessment) and Trigonometry (internal assessment)

Term 2
Graphs (internal assessment) and Systems of Equations (internal assessment)

Term 3
Calculus (external assessment) and Algebra Revision

Term 4
Revision for external exams

Learning Areas:

Mathematics



Pathway

Mathematics with Calculus Level 3

Mathematics with Calculus is an Option subject at Level 2. If a student struggles with Mathematics in Level 1 especally in Algebra and Graphs, he is advised not to opt for a Level 2 Mathematics Calculus course.
