Louise's Course

**Course aims / learning outcomes**

- This course is for students who are planning to study Mathematics at a higher level. Three of the Achievement standards are externally assessed and two are internally assessed so this means the course is eligible for subject endorsement.

**Course content**

AS 91027 (CAT ) Apply algebraic procedures in solving problems is externally assessed by a 1 hour paper in September 2022. This paper is set by NZQA.

A graphics calculator is recommended by NZQA.

What will I learn?

The topics in Algebra and Graphs are useful prerequisites to study academic Mathematics at Level 2 and beyond.The course will be run in term blocks.

Term 1 - AS 91037 and AS 91035

Term 2 - AS 91030 and AS 91028

Term 3 - AS 91027

Term 4 - revision for externalsLiteracy and/or Numeracy requirements for NCEA

Where a standard has a “ Y “ in the column, achievement of the standard will contribute to that requirement.

**Assessment statement**

General information about school policies and procedures for assessment are contained in the school handbook. It is important that you are aware of the school policies about assessment. If you are in doubt about anything please ask your subject LA. It is your responsibility to be well informed about the requirements.

**Authenticity**

- Class tests will take place under supervised test conditions within class.
- Students may be required to sign an authenticity statement, perform certain parts of assessment tasks under close supervision, or show through interview and the existence of notes and supporting material that the work submitted by the student is genuinely his/her own work.

**Appeal Procedures**

- Students have the right to appeal the mark they have been awarded. If a student wishes to appeal a grade, they should initially talk to the subject learning advisor about the marking process immediately after the marked assessment task is shown to them. If still dissatisfied the student should make an appointment and discuss grades with the Principal’s Nominee who will check that the correct procedures have been followed as outlined in the school and subject policies taking into account any special circumstances.
