Consolidation of Year 8 Maths
Ready for Year 9

Course Outline

This course is a thorough revision of Year 8 mathematics to ensure students are ready to start Year 9. Students need a strong grasp of Stage 4 (Years 7 & 8) mathematics before moving on to Stage 5 (Years 9 & 10). Students who struggle in Stage 4 end up doing Stage 5.1 or 5.2 in Year 10. Students who master Stage 4 end up doing Stage 5.3 in Year 10 which is their passport to do Advanced Mathematics and Extension 1 in Years 11 & 12, opening their career opportunities to Science and Engineering.

This course is designed for:

  • students who want to thoroughly revise their Year 8 mathematics;
