This course aims to provide students with the essential mathematical skills and knowledge that students need in their personal, work and civic life; building on the skills and knowledge acquired in previous years.
The curriculum focuses on developing students’ mathematical understanding, fluency, logical reasoning and problem solving skills. These capabilities enable students to respond to familiar and unfamiliar situations by employing mathematical strategies to make informed decisions and solve problems efficiently.
The topics studied in Year 9 cover the content strands of the Victorian Curriculum: Number and Algebra, Measurement and Geometry, and Statistics and Probability. These will include Pythagoras' Theorem, Indices, Area and Volume, Algebra Factorisation and Expansion, Probability, Trigonometry, Linear Relations and Graphs, Statistics and Geometric Reasoning.
To meet the course requirements each semester, students need to complete a combination of skill development activities, investigation work, topic tests and homework tasks, and to demonstrate an adequate understanding of all topics.
