NCEA L2 Mathematics - general B

MAT2B
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Thornley

Recommended Prior Learning

Students require a minimum of 10 Mathematics credits at NCEA L1 to enter any NCEA L2 Mathematics course. It is strongly recommended that students have achieved at least two of AS91029, AS91031 and AS91032 at NCEA L1 to ensure they have the prior knowledge to succeed in this course. 

In order to achieve success at NCEA L2 (curriculum level 7) students need to be present for more than 85% of classes, actively engaged during every lesson and complete between two and three hours of independent study every week.


This NCEA L2 (curriculum level 7) Mathematics semester course covers;

Algebraic methods (external 4 credits, end-of-topic test, DGE term three, exam November).

Apply algebraic methods in solving problems involves: selecting and using methods, demonstrating knowledge of algebraic concepts and terms and communicating using appropriate representations.

Sequences and series (internal 2 credits, one-period in-class assessment).

Apply sequences and series in solving problems involves: selecting and using methods, demonstrating knowledge of concepts and terms and communicating using appropriate representations.

Systems of equations (internal 2 credits, one-period in-class assessment).

Apply systems of equations in solving problems involves: selecting and using methods, demonstrating knowledge of concepts and terms and communicating using appropriate representations.

Can be combined with either MAC2A (general), MAT2A (general) or MAS2C (statistics) for a full-year endorsable course.
