In this subject you will develop the mathematical knowledge, skills, and confidence essential for further University study. In particular, you will explore and apply methods for:
• Gathering, presenting and analysing numerical information (data, graphs, statistics)
• Reasoning about relative proportions (ratios, scaling, percentages, fractions)
• Thinking about numbers and abstract patterns (algebraic reasoning)
The focus is on developing skills in these areas and using numerical reasoning to identify and analyse problems, draw and justify conclusions, and make sense of real-life situations
