Mathematical Methods Units 1 and 2 are pre-requisites for Mathematical Methods Units 3 and 4, and for Specialist Mathematics Units 3 and 4.

Mathematical Methods is an intermediate level course designed for students who have a solid understanding of Year 10 Mathematics A content and who are interested in studying courses at a tertiary level which require a basis of mathematics. CAS technology is used throughout the course to support learning and in assessment.

**Algebra**

- Solution of equations of functions listed below.
- Review of algebraic processes.
- Numeric approximations to solving equations.

**Calculus**

- Average and instantaneous rates.
- Gradient of the tangent function.
- Derivative of simple functions including first principles.
- Applications of differentiation, including stationary points, maximum and minimum problems and straight-line motion.
- Anti-differentiation.

**Functions and Graphs**

- Definitions and properties of functions.
- Graphs of polynomial and power functions, their transformations and inverses.
- Circular functions, their properties and graphs.
- Exponential functions, their properties and graphs.
- Logarithmic functions and their properties and graphs.

**Probability and Statistics**

- Elementary and compound events and their representations.
- Addition rule, conditional probability and independent events.
- Addition and multiplication principles for counting.

**OutcomesAssessment Tasks**(school-assessed coursework)Define and explain the key concepts and be able to apply a range of related mathematical routines and procedures.

Assessment Tasks:

- Assignments.
- Summaries.
- Tests.

Apply mathematical procedures in non-routine contexts and to analyse and discuss these applications of mathematics.

Assessment Tasks:

- Modelling tasks.
- Problem-solving.
- Mathematical investigations.

Use numerical, graphical, symbolic and statistical technology to produce results and carry out analysis in situations involving problem-solving, modelling or investigative techniques.

Assessment Tasks:

Based on performance in a selection of tasks completed in achieving the outcomes above which incorporate the effective and appropriate use of technology.

End of Semester Examination – 1.5 hours.

Students complete a Headstart program of study in Linear graphs and Quadratics during the summer holidays to give them a solid foundation in these mathematical skills and a practice SAC so as to prepare them for their first assessment SAC which are in the form of topic tests.

Cambridge Senior Mathematics: Australian Curriculum/VCE builds on a proven teaching and learning formula to support the new AC/VCE Mathematics Study Designs for implementation in 2016. Our authors have unrivalled expertise in writing examples and problems to prepare students for exams, as well as proven experience interpreting the Australian Curriculum and VCE Study Designs for VCE students.

This combined print and digital title has been designed to help students at the point of learning, so every student can experience success in VCE Mathematics – in the classroom, at home and thus ultimately in the exam.
