# Mathematics and Statistics - Year 10

Seven periods per fortnight

Year 10 builds on the skills you learnt in Year 9. The aim of the Year 10 Mathematics and Statistics course is to prepare you for Year 11 and NCEA. NCEA Level 1 is taught at Level 6 of the curriculum. It is hoped that by the end of Year 10 you are achieving at Level 5.

In Year 10 you have the opportunity to participate in competitions like the Australian Mathematics Competition, the Otago University Junior Mathematics Competition, and Cantamath. There is also the opportunity for more able students to take part in the Mathematics Challenge for Young Australians Enrichment Programme.
