Year 9 Maths
Subject Name: Mathematics
Level: Year 9
Learning Area: Mathematics
Recommended Knowledge: A passing grade at Year 8 Mathematics.
Understanding, Fluency, Problem Solving and Reasoning are an integral part of mathematics content across the three content strands:
• Number and Algebra
• Measurement and Geometry
• Statistics and Probability
Understanding includes describing patterns involving indices and recurring decimals, identifying commonalities between operations with algebra and arithmetic, connecting rules for linear relations their graphs, explaining the purpose of statistical measures, and explaining measurements of perimeter and area.
Fluency includes calculating accurately with simple decimals, indices and integers, recognising equivalence of common decimals and fractions including recurring decimals, factorising and simplifying basic algebraic expressions, and evaluating perimeters, areas of common shapes and their volumes and three dimensional objects.
Problem Solving includes formulating, and modelling practical situations involving ratios, profit and loss, areas and perimeters of common shapes and using two-way tables and Venn diagrams to calculate probabilities.
Reasoning includes justifying the result of a calculation or estimation as reasonable, deriving probability from its complement, using congruence to deduce properties of triangles, finding estimates of means and proportions of populations.
Performance is assessed against the Australian Curriculum standard and reported with A to E grades at the completion of each semester.
Assessment types include:
• Investigations over an extended period of time
• Skills and applications tasks such as written tests, assignments and oral presentations
