Practical level 5 Maths Mathematics & Statistics

Maths with Matt - what could be better?

This course will cover the Level 5 Maths curriculum with a more practical/ context-based approach. We will NOT be doing any NCEA internal assessments, but you should finish the year prepared for NCEA level 1 NEXT year. We will cover a smaller quantity of content, at a slower pace than Alisha and Duncan's level 5 classes.

Over the years We've seen a number of year 10 students accelerate themselves into a full time NCEA program. Often because they were in need of a new challenge and didn't want to repeat a level 5 program.
