Stage 5
Mathematics is studied as a compulsory subject in Years 9 and 10. It is made up of three distinct levels as directed by the Board of Studies. Stage 5 Mathematics is divided into 3 connected pathways 5.1, 5.2 and 5.3. Each pathway continues to build on the concepts developed in Stage 4 Mathematics.

As Year 9 and Year 10 classes are graded, testing and assessment processes are carried out regularly within and between pathways so that comparisons can be made between students at a given level. At the end of Semester 1 student movement occurs between classes.

Solid progress in Stage 5 Mathematics will allow students options when selecting a course in Stage 6 Mathematics (Years 11 and 12).

See below the Scope and Sequence for Years 9 and 10 Mathematics.
