Mathematics and Statistics is the exploration and use of patterns and relationships in quantities, space, and time. These two disciplines are related but have different ways of thinking and of solving problems. Both equip students with effective means for investigating, interpreting, explaining, and making sense of the world in which they live.
By studying mathematics and statistics, students develop the ability to think creatively, critically, strategically, and logically. Students learn to structure and organise, carry out procedures flexibly and accurately, process and communicate information.
For Years 7 to 11 students will study the three strands of Mathematics (Number & Algebra, Geometry & Measurement, Statistics & Probability).
In Year 12 students can select a Statistics based course or a Calculus based course. Both subjects are offered at NCEA Level 3 and Scholarship level.
