VCE Mathematics: General Mathematics
Aim
General Mathematics Units 14 aim to equip students with practical mathematical skills for realworld applications. The course focuses on data analysis, probability, statistics, financial mathematics, and discrete mathematics. Students develop computational thinking, problemsolving abilities, and effective use of technology. The curriculum prepares students for further study, general employment, or business by fostering critical thinking and the ability to model, analyse, and communicate mathematical information. This sequence provides a solid foundation for advanced mathematical studies and practical problemsolving in everyday contexts.
All assessments in General mathematics utilise the CAS calcultor.
Prior Learning:
Prerequisites for Units 1 & 2: Successful completion of Year 10 Mathematics.
Prerequisites for Units 3 & 4: Successful completion of Units 1 and 2 General Mathematics.
