NCEA L2 Mathematics for Engineering and Science A

MES2A
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Thornley

Recommended Prior Learning

Students need to have NCEA L1 Numeracy and have Achieved in AS91027 (1.2) - Algebraic Methods and either AS91031 (1.6) - Geometric Reasoning or AS91028 (1.3) - Tables, equations and graphs for consideration. Places may be limited in which case results will be ranked and places allocated on that basis.


A specialised Mathematics course designed to prepare students for careers in Engineering or Science covering; Graphical Methods, Trigonometry and Coordinate Geometry.

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.
