Stage 5 - Year 10

Welcome to Year 10 Mathematics

This is part of a 2 year course and will be completed at the end of Year 10.  All students will be completing the 5.1 course, most students will complete 5.2 and some will complete 5.3 Please feel free to discuss this with the classroom teacher or Head Teacher, Mrs Leanne Hancock.

Ongoing revision plays a vital role in the development of mathematical skills. Utilising the Schools' Homework Centre on a  Wednesday 2.45-3.45 or ixl maths website are some of the possibilities available.

5.3 #

These are optional topics which contain challenging material for students who will complete all of Stage 5.3 during Years 9 and 10.

These topics are intended for students who are aiming to study mathematics at the very highest level in Stage 6 and beyond.

5.3

Capable students who rapidly grasp new concepts should go beyond 5.2 and study at a more advanced level with these additional topics.

Students who have completed 5.1, 5.2 and 5.2 and 5.3 are generally well prepared for a calculus-based Stage 6 Mathematics course.

5.3 §

These topics are recommended for students who will complete all the 5.1 and 5.2 content and have time to cover some additional material.

These topics are intended for students aiming to complete a calculus-based mathematics course in Stage 6.

5.2

A typical student should be able to complete all the 5.1 and 5.2 material by the end of Year 10. If possible, students should also cover some 5.3 topics.

Students who have completed 5.1 and 5.2 without any 5.3 material typically find it difficult to complete a calculus-based Stage 6 Mathematics course.

5.2 ¿

These topics are recommended for students who will complete all the 5.1 content and have time to cover some additional material.

These topics are intended for students aiming to complete a non-calculus course in Stage 6, such as Mathematics General.

5.1

Stage 5.1 contains compulsory material for all students in Years 9 and 10. Some students will be able to complete these topics very quickly. Others may need additional time to master the basics.

Students who have completed 5.1 without any 5.2 or 5.3 material have very limited options in Stage 6 Mathematics.

4

Some students require revision and consolidation of Stage 4 material prior to tackling Stage 5 topics.
