1MTH

Level 1 Mathematics - Use Mathematical Methods to explore problems that relate to life in Aotearoa N.Z and Pacific.

Course Description

This course consolidates and extends the work undertaken in Years 9 and 10, and is designed to build students' Statistical Literacy levels to Level 6 or above by the end of the year. 

Skills developed in the course:

  • Gathering and processing information
  • Use of  Digital Technology
  • Problem-solving
  • Communication of mathematical ideas


This course consists of 3 Achievement Standards that cover the key basic mathematical concepts of Number, Algebra, Statistics and Probability.

Course description/aims: The aim of the course is to introduce and develop basic mathematical skills, concepts, and understanding in the Mathematical Strands of  Statistics and Probability. The ultimate aim is to gain NCEA Level 1 and University Entrance Numeracy. The course objectives are that the candidate will be expected to:

  • Apply mathematical skills, concepts, and understandings in actual and simulated problems.
  • Demonstrate the ability to select and use appropriate mathematical techniques in problem-solving.
  • Demonstrate the ability to reason logically and systematically.
  • Demonstrate the ability to communicate mathematical ideas.

Upon successfully completing the course of study, students may study NCEA Level 2 Mathematics. However, for some students, this is a terminating course and will provide credits towards Numeracy only.
