Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Thornley

A general Mathematics course designed to prepare students for careers in Business, Commerce, Trade or Industry covering; Trigonometry, Sequences and Series and Algebra. 

A strong work ethic and a commitment to between two and three hours of independent study every week are required for success in this course. 

The following pathways are available;

MCI2A + MCI2B = NCEA L2 Mathematics for Commerce, Business, Trade and Industry which leads to NCEA L3 Mathematics for Trade and Industry or NCEA L3 Mathematics for Commerce and Business.

MES2A + MES2B = NCEA L2 Mathematics for Engineering and Science which leads to NCEA Level three Mathematics for Engineering and Science.

MCI2A + MSP2B = NCEA L2 Mathematics for Statistics and Probability which leads to NCEA Level Three Mathematics for Statistics and Probability.

Any other combination of A and B = NCEA L2 Mathematics for Trade and Industry which leads to NCEA L3 Mathematics for Trade and Industry.

Recommended Prior Learning

Students need to have completed at least 14 credits in Mathematics at NCEA L1 to be admitted to this course.
