Welcome to Year 9 Mathematics at Avonside Girls High School! Our course focuses on the beauty of Maths and enhances problem-solving and critical thinking skills. Students will explore algebra, geometry, statistics, and more. Collaboration and technology will aid in solving real-world challenges. Join us to build a strong mathematical foundation for future studies and get ready to see how Maths surrounds us in every aspect of our lives.




Students will learn to develop strategies to solve problems, in real world contexts that require you to think mathematically and statistically. All students will develop their fluency in the fundamentals of mathematics through varied and frequent practice. They develop their mathematical reasoning through a variety of topics like geometry, algebra, number and statistics. This will enable rangatahi to enter a varied array of careers which could include: healthcare, hospitality, science and engineering, IT, design, agriculture, commerce and entrepreneurship to name a few.

This year students will spend time preparing to gain level 1 numeracy credits by passing the numeracy co requisite exam at the end of the year. This will means students achieve 10 level 1 numeracy credits.
