Year 10 Mathematics
Teacher in Charge: Mr A. Crisp
The second year of a two year course. At Year 10 the emphasis moves to exploring geometry, statistics, probability, algebra and measurement concepts. Students will encounter these concepts within a range of meaningful and rich contexts. They will explore geometry – shapes, angles and an introduction to right angled triangle concepts. Statistics and probability will provide an opportunity to consider the role that data and chance play in our lives. The mathematics of relationships will be considered through the concepts of algebra and graphs. The study of measurement will promote thinking about area, volume and associated problems. Students will be grouped with others of similar confidence to ready themselves for NCEA.
