General Mathematics provides for different combinations of students interests and preparation for study of VCE Further Mathematics at Unit 3 and 4 level.

- Algebra and structure: Linear relations and equations

- Arithmetic and number: Computation and practical arithmetic, Financial arithmetic

- Discrete mathematics: Matrices, Graphs and Networks, Number patterns and recursion

- Geometry, measurement and trigonometry: Shape and measurement, Applications of trigonometry

- Graphs of linear and non-linear relations: Linear graphs and models, Inequalities and linear programming, Variation

- Statistics: Investigating and comparing data distributions, Investigating relationships between two numerical variables

- To define and explain key concepts as specified in the selected content from the areas of study, and apply a range of related mathematical routines and procedures.

- To select and apply mathematical facts, concepts, models and techniques from the topics covered in the unit to investigate and analyse extended application problems in a range of contexts.

- To select and use numerical, graphical and symbolic and statistical functionalities of technology to develop mathematical ideas, produce results and carry out analysis in situations requiring problem-solving, modelling or investigative techniques or approaches.

These units are designed to follow on from General Mathematics Unit 1 & Unit 2. It will provide a broad base of mathematical experience which is considered suitable for employment or further study where mathematics is a supporting subject but not the main focus of the course. It may be taken on its own or in conjunction with Mathematical Methods Unit 1 and Unit 2.

- Data Analysis

- Recursion

- Financial Modelling

- Define and explain key concepts and apply related mathematical techniques and models as specified in the content from the compulsory areas of study.

- Select and apply the mathematical concepts, models and techniques as specified from the content in the compulsory areas of study in a range of contexts of increasing complexity

- Select and appropriately use technology to develop mathematical ideas, produce results and carry out analysis in situations requiring problem-solving, modelling or investigative approaches from the compulsory areas of study.
