Health and Physical Education
Students are encouraged to attempt the highest level of Mathematics that they are capable of studying to maximise their future career options.
Students and parents should seek information and advice from the student’s Mathematics teacher and the Careers Adviser. Recommendations will be based on Semester 1 performance and may be reviewed if Semester 2 performance varies significantly.
VCE Specialist Mathematics Units 1 and 2 must be studied in conjunction with Mathematical Methods Units 1 and 2.
VCE Specialist Mathematics Units 3 and 4 must be studied in conjunction with Mathematical Methods Units 3 and 4.
Year 10-12 Progression in Mathematics
Years 10 to 12 will provide a range of differentiated Mathematics Courses with flexible pathways, including acceleration of students into higher levels of courses based on their academic level of achievement. The courses on offer will be as follows:
10A – VCE Mathematical Methods, VCE General Mathematics and for the high achieving students, VCE Specialist Mathematics.
10S – VCE General Mathematics, high achieving students to VCE Mathematical Methods or a modified VCE VCAL General Mathematics course for students who have trade aspirations.
11 General Mathematics Units 1 and 2, Mathematical Methods Units 1 and 2, Specialist Mathematics Units 1 and 2, early access to 12 VCE Mathematics.
12 Further Maths, 12 Mathematical Methods, 12 Specialist Mathematics.
Entry into VCE Biology, Chemistry, Physics and/or Psychology shall require a minimum grade of 60% in the relevant study at Year 10.
* VCE Chemistry Units 1 and 2 are prerequisites for the study of VCE Chemistry Units 3 and 4.
* VCE Physics Units 1 and 2 are prerequisites for the study of VCE Physics Units 3 and 4.
Exceptions may only be granted following consultation with the Learning Leader of Science or the VCE Units 3 and 4 level teacher of the study.
