Year 13 Calculus    (13MCA)

The general aim is a course of Mathematical study for those students with a particular interest in the Physical Sciences, Engineering and in general any field where analysis is an important tool.

The topics are a continuation of those introduced in Year 12:

  • Trigonometry
  • Calculus
  • Algebra

There is also an increasing emphasis on problem solving and model making.

Students study four topics (standards) that count for 21 credits towards Level 3 NCEA.

Internal Standards (Assignments)

  • AS91575  (3.3)  Apply trigonometric methods in solving problems  (4 credits)       

External Standards (Exams)

  • AS91577  (3.5)  Apply the algebra of complex numbers, in solving problems  (5 credits)
  • AS91578  (3.6)  Apply differentiation methods in solving problems  (6 credits)
  • AS91579  (3.7)  Apply integration methods in solving problems  (6 credits)
