Eliza Weinberg Maths Methods 34
Welcome from Eliza Weinberg


Students taking this subject should have a very strong algebraic background. In this study, students have access to worthwhile and challenging mathematical learning activities. Students learn and practise mathematical skills and techniques to find solutions to standard problems. They further extend their mathematical knowledge and skills through the use of computer algebra system technology. Students undertake investigative projects and solve problems in unfamiliar and real-life situations.

Unit focus areas

Mathematical Methods Unit 3 – Polynomials and graphs | Functions and inverses | Exponential and logarithmic functions | Circular functions | Differential and integral calculus

Mathematical Methods Unit 4 - Discrete and continuous probability distributions | Binomial and Normal distributions | Probability density functions | Statistical inference | Differential and integral calculus


Pre-requisites for Mathematical Methods Units 3 and 4 is Mathematical Methods Units 1 and 2.

Year 11 students who study Mathematical Methods Units 3 and 4 must also be studying Specialist Mathematics Units 1 and 2. Approval from the Head of Department is required.


For Units 3 and 4, students complete School-Assessed Coursework (40%) subject to external moderation, and two end-of-year examinations (60%).

Enrolments and assessments

Some important information regarding enrolments and assessments.
