Stage 6 - Year 11

If your son/daughter has not been bringing a calculator to school for use during their Mathematics lessons they are at a huge disadvantage to their peers.

 

The Mathematics Faculty recommends that all students use a CASIO fx-82 plus calculator. These calculators may be purchased from the school canteen for $35. The CASIO fx-82 plus is very user friendly and caters for all students from Years 7 to 12.

 

All calculators may be submitted to the Mathematics Faculty to have the student's name engraved on the back.

Ongoing revision plays a vital role in developing skills in Mathematics. Utilising the schools'  Homework Centre, ixl math (website) and Maths2kool (website) are all great resources.
