13MCB
This course requires 2 options.

Cambridge Mathematics Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics

Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr T. Schumacher

This course covers Cambridge Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics.

13MCB is a 'double subject' which takes two lines of the timetable.

It covers both Level 3 NCEA Calculus and Statistics along with the A Level Cambridge course. Students enrolled in 13MCB will sit the same NCEA standards as students who are doing both 13MAC (Calculus) and 13MAS (Statistics).

This is a high level Mathematics course. It provides a rigorous mathematical background for students progressing to tertiary study. The material studied is at a similar level to Stage 1 University Mathematics.

To be in this course students need to have attained at least 60% in AS Mathematics in Year 12 or have Head of Faculty approval.

Recommended Prior Learning

Students must have studied 12MAX in Year 12.

A mark of 60% or better in AS Mathematics in Year 12 will give a student entry to this course. Students who do not meet this criteria can get special permission from Mr Schumacher or Mr Paull.
