Course Description

Year 10 Mathematics will be delivered using the Australian Curriculum. Students develop mathematical understandings in the areas of Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, Statistics and Probability. Focus is placed on the mathematical proficiencies of Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning. Learning in Mathematics is cumulative and builds on concepts, skills and understanding developed in earlier years.

Note: A scientific calculator is required by all students.

*The 10A content descriptions are optional and are intended for students who require additional content to extend their mathematical study whilst completing the Year 10 curriculum. It is not anticipated that all students will attempt the 10A content.


Year 10 Students are assessed according to the Mathematics Achievement Standards outlined in the Australian Curriculum, with A-E Grades used for reporting.

Assessment types include a range of tests, investigations and assignments.
