Year 11 Mathematics with Geometry and Measurement (Semester 1)

Course Description

Teacher in Charge:

This course has a focus on mathematics with Geometry and Measurement. Geometry is the study of space and shape.  Measurement is used everyday from the kitchen to the builders yard. Students will solve problems in real life contexts using fractions, percentages, decimals, ratios and exchange rates. They will calculate perimeters, areas and volumes to solve measurement problems. They will use a range of geometric representations to solve a problem.
