Senior Mathematics

Senior Mathematics offers three different pathways through school that caters for students’ interests and areas of strength.

  • Numeracy - this pathway gives students the opportunity to earn Numeracy credits that contribute towards NCEA Level 1.
  • Mathematics - this pathway is designed for students who wish to study Mathematics through NCEA Level 3, but with a reduced focus on algebraic skills. It covers a range of applied Mathematics, such as modelling, network theory and statistics.
  • Calculus and Statistics - this pathway is designed for students who have strong algebraic skills, and plan to go on to university for further study involving Mathematics or Statistics.

Keen students will have the opportunity to further extend their thinking in the Australian Mathematics Competition and Scholarship examinations.

For more information about the individual courses in each pathway we offer in the senior school please consult the Northcote College Course Directory.
