Navigating pathways and developing agency to help shape the future

This course builds on the skills learnt in previous years by applying strategies from all areas of the curriculum to solve problems. There is a focus on developing mathematical skills and knowledge through 'Understanding', 'Knowing That' and 'Knowing How To', and 'Doing' throughout the year.

This course allows students to focus on two internal Achievement Standards worth 10 credits and support students who may still need to achieve the NCEA Numeracy co-requisite.

Problem Solving, developing logic and reasoning, and communication of mathematical ideas will be part of all content areas, while weaving Mātauranga Māori throughout.

What should I have done already?

There are no entry requirements for this course - you will be directed into a course by your teacher and the Head of Learning Area based on your performance in Year 10.




There are two achievement standards that students will have their learning based around that are worth 5 credits each. Achievement standards will be chunked in to manageable learning. 

Authenticity and Appeals

These issues are dealt with by the college’s assessment procedures. Read your NCEA Student Handbook for details.
