Access code required

The study of financial, geometric, statistical, and operational mathematics.

Mathematics A will assist to:

  • Develop knowledge and skills of computation, estimation and measurement;
  • Help manage financial affairs in an informed way;
  • Develop the capacity to interpret and analyse information presented in a variety of forms;
  • Make judgements based on evidence and reasoning.

Here is the course outline:

1. General Mathematics Study Materials

Work Program and other handy documents to help you study.

2. Module 2

Unit 1 Topic 3 Linear functions and their graphs

3. Module 3

Unit 3 Topic 1 Bivariate data analysis

4. Module 4

Unit 3 topic 2 Time series analysis

5. Module 5

Unit 3 Topic 3 Growth and decay in sequences

6. Module 6 Shape and Measurement

Unit 1 Topic 2 Shape and measurement builds on and extends the knowledge and skills students developed in the P–10 Australian Curriculum with the concept of similarity and problems involving simple and compound geometric shapes. Students apply these skills in a range of practical contexts, including those involving three-dimensional shapes.

7. Module 7 Applications of Trigonometry

Unit 1 Topic 2 Applications of trigonometry extends students’ knowledge of trigonometry to solve practical problems involving non-right-angled triangles in both two and three dimensions, including problems involving the use of angles of elevation and depression and bearings in navigation.

8. Module 8 Earth Geometry and Time zones

Unit 3 Topic 4 Earth geometry and time zones offers an opportunity to use contexts relevant to students.

9. Module 9 Loans, investments and annuities

Unit 4 Topic 1 Loans, investments and annuities aims to provide students with sufficient knowledge of financial mathematics to solve practical problems associated with taking out or refinancing a mortgage and making investments.

10. Module 10 Graphs and networks

Unit 4 Topic 2 Graphs and networks introduces students to the language of graphs and the ways in which graphs, represented as a collection of points and interconnecting lines, can be used to model and analyse everyday situations such as rail or social networks.

11. Module 11 Networks and decision mathematics

Networks and decision mathematics uses networks to model and aid decision-making in practical situations.
