What should I have already achieved?
At least 12 credits in NCEA Level 2 Mathematics. This is a demanding course and at least a Merit grade in both externals at NCEA Level 2 is required to be successful in this course.
What will I learn?
This course could be combined with MAT3 to form ONE course. This needs to be discussed with both course teachers in conjunction with the Learning Advisor.
It is aimed at students who are very comfortable with algebra and who will be studying to advanced tertiary level in pure mathematics or physics or specialised fields such as engineering or architecture.
How will this course be assessed?
21 credits are available in this course. At least 18 credits is recommended. (Even in conjunction with the MAT3 course). Students who passed complex numbers in 2021 with a Merit grade, will be focusing on only two external standards in 2022 and can choose to sit conic section internal.
Will there be any FAOs (Further Assessment Opportunities)?
There will be NO FAOs in this course.
