# Junior Mathematics

## Year 7 - Mathematics

**Overview**

Year 7 students transition into high school mathematics where they develop and consolidate their numeracy skills in a variety of mathematical concepts from the Victorian Curriculum. Students are given the opportunity to work through Year 7 Mathematics concepts whilst also closing gaps in their learning through differentiated learning modules. Students are provided with many and varied opportunities to become confident, creative, and effective communicators of Mathematics.

Units / Topics | Types of Assessment |
---|---|

Number and Algebra | Average Growth Rate |

Measurement and Geometry | Semester Projects |

Statistics and Probability | Rich Task Investigations |

Fortnightly Tests |

**Future Directions**

Satisfactory completion of this subject will provide a sound foundation for students to proceed to Year 8 Mathematics.
Students who demonstrate capacity, may be invited into Advanced Mathematics

## Year 8 - Advanced Mathematics*

**Overview**

Year 8 students who are working above standard are invited by the College to participate in the Advanced Mathematics course. Students are given the opportunity to accelerate through the mathematics curriculum through the completion of mathematical modules, collaborative problem-solving tasks, and discovery projects. Students are provided with many and varied opportunities to become confident, creative, and effective communicators of Mathematics.

*This subject is studied with Year 9 students of the same ability
