Life at Seton
Mathematics provides ongoing mathematical experiences which build students’ essential skills and knowledge. Mathematics develops numeracy capabilities that all students need in their personal, work and civic life, and provides the fundamentals on which mathematical specialities and professional applications of mathematics are built. Mathematics classes aim to provide students with challenge and opportunity for intellectual growth consistent with their ability, experience and future life options.
At Seton College four Mathematics courses are offered for Year 9 and 10 to cater for the diverse needs of all students.
These courses will prepare students for Prevocational Mathematics or Functional Mathematics in the Senior School.
Students are placed in ability groupings so that they can receive instruction appropriate to their needs. These groupings are flexible and student movement between groups occurs on a needs basis after consultation with the Student, Parent, Classroom Teacher and Subject Coordinator.
A recommended course of study will be included on the End of Semester Two report.
These courses are outlined below:
This subject aims to cover all units outlined by the Australian Curriculum.
Students completing this course will complete work across the 3 strands in Mathematics.
They will be encouraged to further develop their mathematical skills and mathematical reasoning in both real life and more abstract situations.
9/10 MATHEMATICS FOR LIVING
This subject is a school based course where greater emphasis is placed on numerical calculations needed for living.
They will be encouraged to solve problems and develop skills to assist them in making good mathematical choices for living.
9/10 MATHEMATICS AROUND US
This subject is a school based course where greater emphasis is placed on numerical calculations needed in everyday life.
They will be encouraged to solve problems and develop skills to assist them in making good mathematical choices in real life situations.
9/10 MATHEMATICS AND NUMERACY
This subject is a school based course in which students develop basic number skills.
They will be encouraged to solve problems and develop basic numeracy skills.
will involve written tests, book work and extended modelling and problem solving tasks appropriate to their level and understanding.
