Level 2 Mathematics - General

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mrs E. Dantra

Level 2 Mathematics - one External is a general Mathematics course that includes units of work from within the Number, Algebra, Measurement, Geometry, Statistics, and Probability strands using written methods of study.

This mostly internal course is designed for students who are interested in continuing their study in Mathematics and Statistics, however, it does not lead to Calculus (3MAC) at Level 3, due to the omission of the two Level 2 externals of Algebra and Calculus. 

Successful completion leads to Level 3 Mathematics (3MAT) in the following year.

Recommended Prior Learning

Achievement of at least 10 credits from Level 1 Mathematics - General (11MAT) or Level 1 Mathematics - with Externals (11MAX).
