Level 3 Mathematics with Calculus
Teacher in Charge: Mr R. Lal
MATHEMATICS WITH CALCULUS – YEAR 13
NCEA LEVEL 3
This course is aimed at students who wish to continue the study of Mathematics, the physical sciences, engineering, computer science and any area where analysis is an important tool. This course will involve study of complex numbers, differentiation, trigonometry, equations and linear programming. Students taking this course will be able to study mathematics at a deeper level in tertiary institutions. To gain entry into this course, students must preferably pass both external courses - Algebra and Calculus at Level 2. Students who pass only one of these externals will need to gain approval from the head of department to get into this course.
Note: Students can take both Mathematics with Calculus and Mathematics with Statistics. If a student achieves a total 28 credits in these two subjects, this will qualify them for two university approved subjects. Eg 10 credits in Calculus and 18 credits in Statistics.
