There are two main Mathematics courses in the senior school: General Mathematics, which the majority of students choose and Mathematics (2 unit), which is for the more mathematically able students. Students who are strong mathematicians and enjoy their mathematics can also do the Mathematics Extension 1 course. Sometimes for exceptional students the further Mathematics Extension 2 course may be offered in Year 12.
Wollongong High School of the Performing Arts boasts an experienced, enthusiastic Mathematics staff who expect and achieve high standards from our students. The Mathematics Faculty support all students to achieve their best mathematically and in all curriculum areas. Each year approximately 70 students are invited to sit for the Australian Mathematics Competition and we consistently achieve strong results in this competition. All Year 7 & 9 students will sit for the NAPLAN test, which assesses their numeracy ability.
