About this Unit
In this unit students will acquire a variety of problem solving, investigation and mathematical modelling techniques that incorporate the application of algebra and highlight the importance of understanding probability, data and graphical representations in real life. Students will apply mathematics in real contexts; evaluate data gathered in real time and identify patterns while engaging with the concepts of number, probability, measurement, problem solving, linear and exponential representations. Engagement with this unit contributes directly to the achievement of a sound understanding and application of mathematical concepts and develops mathematical thinking.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Scientific calculator, Computer access with spread sheet software, Geometry set
