Students will be offered 7 credits.
This course can be combined with either Mathemetics with Algebraic thinking (MAT) or Mathematics with Geometry and Measurement (MATG) for students who wish to study Mathematics with Statistics in Year 12. Students who wish to study Mathematics with Calculus in Year 12 should combine this cousre with Mathematics with Algebraic Thinking (MAT). PLEASE NOTE: Combining this course with Elements of Mathematics is not recommend as they contain some of the same content . Check with your Mathematics Teacher or a Careers Advisor for advice if you want to see if this course will suit your needs for a particular future pathway.
