Level 1 Numeracy - available in consultation with the Deans and Mathematics teachers.
This alternative course concentrates on the three numeracy standards to help ensure students are able to meet the numeracy requirement for NCEA Level 1. The numeracy standards cover the basics of measurement, number and statistics skills for adult life. Once a student has completed the numeracy standards there will be an opportunity to work towards three achievement standards covering Numeric Reasoning, Transformation Geometry and Linear Algebra. This course does not lead to any Year 12 course.
