Course Outline

This course MUST be studied with Mathematics Methods. It cannot be studied as a stand-alone course.

This course provides opportunities, beyond those presented in the Mathematics Methods ATAR course, to develop rigorous mathematical arguments and proofs, and to use mathematical models more extensively.

The course contains topics in functions and calculus that build on and deepen the ideas presented in the Mathematics Methods course, as well as demonstrate their application in many areas. This course also extends understanding and knowledge of statistics and introduces the topics of vectors, complex numbers and matrices.

The Mathematics Specialist ATAR course aims to develop students’:

  • understanding of concepts and techniques drawn from, and the ability to solve applied problems using, combinatorics, geometry, trigonometry, complex numbers, vectors, matrices, calculus and statistics
  • reasoning in mathematical and statistical contexts and interpretation of mathematical and statistical information, including ascertaining the reasonableness of solutions to problems
  • capacity to communicate in a concise and systematic manner using appropriate mathematical and statistical language
  • ability to construct proofs

Minimum Entrance Requirements
