This course is aimed at students who wish to continue in Math, Sciences, Computing and Engineering in the future.

Algebra is the language of Math.

We will start the year off with sequences and series - this is a study of number patterns and how they can be used in real life situations.
It is internally assessed by Achievement Standard – AS 91258 – worth 2 credits.

Khan topic: https://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra2/sequences-and-series

We will then move onto Algebra you will need to know for the rest of the year. It is a big step up on Level 1 so if you haven't done Level 1 Algebra you will find this very hard.
Algebra is needed for the Graphs and Calculus later on in Level 2 and is essential for level 3 Maths, Physics and Chemistry if you intend to do that next year.

A calculator is essential. A scientific calculator is good enough, though a graphics calculator can save you lots of time in solving problems and in exams.
Algebra is assessed in an exam (91261, 4cr) at the end of the year, and as such we will leave lots of time to go over the topic at the end of the year.

Please bring a quad maths exercise book such as 1E5 and a pen!!!

If you need to practise some algebra to catch up for this course - khan academy's Algebra One (https://www.khanacademy.org/math/algebra) is an excellent set of skills.
