Nurturing student learning and personal growth in Mathematics
Students who have an ongoing interest, are intuitive about numbers and are curious about patterns and problem solving are welcome to enquire about our exceptional Accelerated Mathematics program.
The Accelerated Program in Mathematics is for students who are Gifted and Talented in Mathematics. This program demands commitment from parents and students for three continuous years. Students will complete the Record of School Achievement (ROSA) in Mathematics, Preliminary High School Certificate and the High School Certificate (HSC) in Mathematics under a modified time frame.
How the program works:
In Year 9, students will work to complete the ROSA in Mathematics
In Year 10, students commence the Preliminary HSC in Mathematics and Extension 1. This will be completed by the conclusion of Term 3, Year 10
The HSC (Year 12 equivalent) begins in Term 4 of Year 10
The remainder of the HSC course is completed in Year 11 with students sitting the exam in October
What are the benefits to studying Accelerated Mathematics?
Provides students an opportunity to indulge their passion for Mathematics
Early completion of the Mathematics program for Record of School Achievement (RoSA) and HSC credentials
Greater flexibility in Year 12 for students to devote time to other HSC subjects
Students develop organisational skills, build perseverence, confidence and time management skills
Hear from our students:
“The Accelerated program has been a great experience that allows brilliant minds to excel in Mathematics.”
“We have the privilege to sit for the HSC Mathamatics Exam in Year 11 which allows us more time to study for other subjects in Year 12.”
“We can extend our knowledge and learn things that the other students don’t get to experience."
We would like to pay our respects and acknowledge the traditional custodians of the land that St Johns Park High School is located, the Cabrogal People of the Darug nation. We also pay respect to Elders both past and present.
