Pre-requisite: none

Assumed Knowledge:

It is assumed that you will have completed year 10 maths successfully.


Course Description

This subject is designed to enable you to:

1. develop mathematical knowledge and skills,

2. apply mathematical knowledge to analyse, investigate, model and solve problems in a variety of situations, ranging from well-defined and familiar situations to unfamiliar and open-ended situations and

3. use technology as an effective support for mathematical activity.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

Capabilities:

It is assumed that you will have completed year 10 maths successfully.


On successful completion of this course, you should be able to:

 

1. define and explain key concepts as specified in the selected content from the areas of study and apply a range of related mathematical routines and procedures,

2. select and apply mathematical facts, concepts, models and techniques from the topics covered in the unit to investigate and analyse extended application problems in a range of contexts, and

3. select and apply mathematical facts, concepts, models and techniques from the topics covered in the unit to investigate and analyse extended application problems in a range of contexts.


Overview of Learning Activities

You will be expected to participate actively in all learning activities that include class discussion, solving mathematical problems, homework, quizzes, assignments, class tests, SACs etc.


Overview of Learning Resources

You should have the prescribed text book:

Jones, Peter et al., (2016) General Mathematics, Cambridge

RMIT will provide you with resources and tools for learning in this course through our online systems and access to specialised facilities and relevant software. You will also have access to the library resources.


Overview of Assessment

You will be assessed on how well you meet the course’s learning outcomes and on your development against the program capabilities. Assessment will include School Assessed Coursework Tasks (SACs) done under supervision in class time as well as Assignments to be done outside class time

Feedback will be given on all assessment tasks.

If you have a long-term medical condition and/or disability it may be possible to negotiate to vary aspects of the learning or assessment methods. You can contact the program coordinator, special needs coordinator, or the Equitable Learning Service if you would like to find out more.
