16 MATHEMATICS All Year 11 students must be in one of the three compulsory Mathematics courses at Year 11: 11 Mathematics A - 11MAA, 11 Mathematics Studies - 11MST, 11 Mathematics Skills - 11MSK. In Year 12 we offer three Mathematics courses: 12 Mathematics, 12 Mathematics Studies, 12 Mathematics Skills. If a student is aiming to do Year 12 or 13 Mathematics, Chemistry or Physics courses they should aim to be in 11 Mathematics A. 11 MATHEMATICS A - 11MAA • To be placed in 11 Mathematics A, students must achieve well in all assessments, especially in the end of year examination.

• Students need to have particularly good results in Number and Algebra if they are going to succeed in 11 Mathematics A. • 11 Mathematics A is assessed through both internally assessed and externally assessed Achievement Standards. • Although you can go through to Year 12 Mathematics courses from 11 Mathematics Studies, it is an advantage to have completed 11 Mathematics A as it keeps all options open for Year 12. • 12 Chemistry and 12 Physics both require students to have 10 and 14 credits respectively from 11 Mathematics A or 11 Mathematics Studies, and require 12 Mathematics or 12 Mathematics Studies as a co-requisite. • 13 Physics requires credits from the 12 Mathematics course and recommends 13 Calculus as a co-requisite.

11 MATHEMATICS STUDIES - 11MST • 11 Mathematics Studies offers mostly internally assessed Achievement Standards with one externally examined Achievement Standard. • Students can progress into either a 12 Mathematics Studies course or 12 Mathematics Skills course. 11 MATHEMATICS SKILLS - 11MSK • 11 Mathematics Skills is assessed using only internal Achievement Standards and Unit Standards. • The focus in this course will be achieving the 10 credits in Numeracy required for the Level 1 NCEA certificate.

• Students can progress into the Year 12 Mathematics Skills course directly from 11 Mathematics Skills only if they have achieved 12 credits from Achievement Standards – this does not include credits from the additional Unit Standards. Speak with your Mathematics teacher or the HOF Mathematics if you have questions or concerns regarding your 11 Mathematics course.

17 SCIENCE All Year 11 students must be in one of the three compulsory Science courses: 11 Science A - 11SCA, 11 Science Studies - 11SCST, 11 Science Skills - 11SCSK. There are also two additional 11 Science courses are offered: 11 Chemistry-Biology - 11CHBI, and 11 Chemistry-Physics - 11CHPH. Students may choose one of these in addition to 11 Science A. See pages 24 and 25 for the details of these courses. 11 SCIENCE A - 11SCA • To be placed in 11 Science A, students must achieve well in all Year 10 assessments and the end of year examination.

• 11 Science A is assessed by a combination of practical based internal Achievement Standards and externally assessed Achievement Standards. • To be able to take any of the senior sciences (Biology, Chemistry or Physics), students must complete the 11 Science A course. • 12 Biology requires students to have completed 11 Science A and achieve 14 credits from 11 English A or 11 English Studies. • 12 Chemistry requires students to achieve 10 credits in 11 Mathematics A or 11 Mathematics Studies, and Year 12 Mathematics or 12 Mathematics Studies is a co- requisite.

• 12 Physics requires students to have 14 credits from 11 Mathematics A or 11 Mathematics Studies. To progress from 12 Physics to 13 Physics students must have 14 credits from the 12 Mathematics course and 13 Calculus is a co-requisite. 11 SCIENCE STUDIES - 11SCST • 11 Science Studies offers internally assessed Achievement Standards. • Students can continue from 11 Science Studies into the 12 Science course only, or gain entry into Year 11 Science A for the following year. 11 SCIENCE SKILLS - 11SCSK • 11 Science Skills offers internally assessed Achievement Standards and Unit Standards. • Students cannot progress into any Year 12 Science course.

• Depending on their achievement in this course, students may progress into 11 Science A or 11 Science Studies. Year 10 students need to consider their possible career pathways and the requirements for tertiary study to ensure their subject choices are suitable. Many career options such as agriculture, horticulture, engineering, armed forces, health sciences (e.g. both animal and human including nursing, vet nursing, vet, physiotherapy, dietician etc.) require some science at Year 12 and / or Year 13. Check with the tertiary provider or the school’s Careers Advisors.

18 YEAR 11 OPTION SUBJECTS The following pages give a course information and assessment guidelines for each of the subject options offered to Year 11 students. There may be changes to the material taught and assessed before the start of the 2018 school year. Your teachers will give you a full course outline at the start of next year.
