Teacher in Charge: R. Cookson
This internally assessed Achievement Standard based course is designed to give students the necessary mathematical skills and knowledge to gain numeracy and provide grounding for future Level 2 Mathematics and Statistics study. This course includes content from a range of Mathematics and Statistics strands. Due to its structure it does not, however, formally support a pathway to studying Mathematics with Calculus at Level 3 of the New Zealand Curriculum.
Prior to this course, students will have also attempted an achievement standard in year 10.
Level 2 Mathematics (MAS)  mainly Internal standards
