"Mathematics has its own value and beauty and the Australian Curriculum's mathematics aims to instil in students an appreciation of the elegance and power of mathematical reasoning."
The design of the mathematics course at Coorparoo Secondary College will equip students with the necessary skills to learn and navigate in a numerate world, building on and developing concepts from previous years. The goal is for students to have the confidence and means to approach familiar and unfamiliar situations positively and use mathematics and numerical practices to derive the most meaning from those contexts and situations.
Year 7 to 10
the implementation of the Australian Curriculum for mathematics covers both content and proficiency strands.
The content strands are:
- number and algebra
- measurement and geometry
- statistics and probability
The proficiency strands, describing the thinking and doing of mathematics are:
- problem solving
Year 11 and 12
Mathematics subjects offered to students are:
- Specialist Mathematics
- Mathematical Methods
- General Mathematics
- Essential Mathematics
The subjects listed will consolidate and build on the mathematics and problem solving skills taught previously.
