Cambridge Mathematics Pure Mathematics and Mathematical Statistics

13MCB
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.


Contributions and Equipment/Stationery

Graphics Calculator for NCEA Statistics
Scientific Calculator for Cambridge and Calculus components of the course


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.
