Accelerated mathematics

The Accelerated Course is recommended for students with strong maths abilities and is an invitation only course. Students who undertake this course will complete all the coursework for Years 9 and 10 Mathematics (Stage 5 Maths Syllabus), in one school year, over 11 periods a fortnight.

When the student is in Year 10 they will begin the Year 11 Maths Extension 1 course content. Students who successfully complete the accelerated course will be eligible to sit for the HSC in term 4 of Year 11.

Doing an accelerated course means you get to have a taste of what the HSC process will be like a year in advance. It will also give a student more time and flexibility to focus on other subjects in Year 12. Students will also have the option in Year 12 to continue their Mathematics studies by doing the Mathematics Extension 2 course.

The Accelerated Course aims to challenge students who have a strong foundation of mathematical concepts and a passion for Mathematics while developing critical thinking and problem solving skills. It builds perseverance, confidence and organisational skills. Overall, the Accelerated Course provides students who excel with the opportunity to indulge in their passion for Mathematics.
