LEVEL 2 CALCULUS 2MAC   

What is this course about? This is one of two courses offered at NCEA level 2. Algebra and graphs provide a good foundation  for the study of calculus and trigonometry and is primarily intended as preparation for students who  anticipate taking the NCEA level 3 calculus course the following year.   It is recommended that students entering this course should have successfully completed an NCEA  level 1 achievement standard course or equivalent, or have demonstrated exceptional ability in Year  10. 

What sorts of things will I do? You'll use your graphical calculator and software such as Geogebra or Desmos to model real world  situations and explore mathematical concepts in interactive ways.    You will learn:  ● to recognise the structure of mathematics and use the skills you have already learned to  solve problems that look difficult but are actually easy  ● about new algebraic concepts such as logarithms and graphing functions such as  exponentials, hyperbolas  ● the basics of calculus which is the study of change.
