Level 2 Mathematics

L2MAT
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr G. Smith

Recommended Prior Learning

Pre-requisite: 18 or more credits in NCEA Level 1 Mathematics Achievement Standards and at least Merit in AS 91027 (Algebra MCAT) and/or AS91028 Tables, equations and graphs are needed for L2MATC


Students should select Level 2 Mathematics as an option and they will be divided up into L2MATC (Calculus), L2MATS (Statistics) or L2MATG (General) at HoF discretion.

L2MATC is for students who enjoy Mathematics and who may wish to study Calculus and Statistics at NCEA Level 3. The course consists of Level 2 Mathematics and Statistics achievement standards including the external standards in Algebra, Calculus and Probability and Statistics. Successful completion of L2MATC is a pre-requisite for entry into L3MATC and L3MATS. A course endorsement can be gained from this course.

L2MATS is for students who may wish to study Statistics at NCEA Level 3 but not Calculus. The course consists of Level 2 Mathematics and Statistics achievement standards including an external standard in Probability and Statistics. Successful completion of L2MATS is a pre-requisite for entry into L3MATS or L3MATG. A course endorsement may be gained from this course.

L2MATG is for students who want to gain Mathematics at Level 2 but do not want to continue Mathematics into Year 13. L2MATG consists of internally assessed achievement standards only. A course endorsement cannot be gained from this course.

The achievement standards included in each course will be a selection taken from the 14 Mathematics standards available at Level 2.
