Year 11 ATAR Mathematics Methods – A1MAM & A2MAM

Unit 1
Prerequisites:
1.  Successful completion equivalent Year 10 mathematics is strongly advised (or complete appropriate placement test).
2.  Student has sat the OLNA and attained Category 3

This unit begins with a review of the basic algebraic concepts and techniques required for a successful introduction to the study of calculus. The basic trigonometric functions are then introduced. Simple relationships between variable quantities are reviewed, and these are used to introduce the key concepts of a function and its graph. The study of inferential statistics begins in this unit with a review of the fundamentals of probability and the introduction of the concepts of counting, conditional probability and independence.

Unit Cost: $60.00 (Textbook included)

ATAR courses require the purchase of a Classpad Calculator – $230.00

Unit 2
Prerequisites:
1.  Successful completion equivalent Year 10 mathematics is strongly advised (or complete appropriate placement test).
2.  Student has sat the OLNA and attained Category 3

The algebra section of this unit focuses on exponentials. Their graphs are examined and their applications in a wide range of settings are explored. Arithmetic and geometric sequences are introduced and their applications are studied. Rates and average rates of change are introduced, and this is followed by the key concept of the derivative as an ‘instantaneous rate of change’. These concepts are reinforced numerically, by calculating difference quotients both geometrically as slopes of chords and tangents, and algebraically. Calculus is developed to study the derivatives of polynomial functions, with simple application of the derivative to curve sketching, the calculation of slopes and equations of tangents, the determination of instantaneous velocities and the solution of optimisation problems. The unit concludes with a brief consideration of anti-differentiation.
