## Year 10 - Core Mathematics

**Overview**

Year 10 Mathematics students will continue to develop and consolidate their F â€“ 10 Mathematics Curriculum knowledge and skills in a variety of mathematical concepts from the Mathematics 2.0 Victorian Curriculum.

Students will be introduced to the Level 10 Mathematics curriculum and will develop an understanding of mathematical concepts and fluency with processes and be able to reason, pose and solve problems in Number, Algebra, Measurement, Space, Statistics and Probability.

The Year 10 Mathematics course focuses on consolidating and enhancing studentsâ€™ skills in all areas of mathematics in order to best prepare them for the VCE study of Mathematics.
