Essential Mathematics gives students the opportunity to develop and extend their ability to use practical problem solving in everyday and work place contexts. Students learn to apply their mathematical skills to diverse settings, including everyday calculations, financial management, business applications, measurement, geometry and statistics in social contexts.
Some students doing Essential Mathematics may already know what they want to pursue as a vocational career and will be doing VET courses.
The aim of our Adelaide Essential Maths tutors in this program is to support students with the current topics they are working on at school and assist them in preparing for assessments in the following areas:
- calculations, time and ratio
- earning and spending
- data in context
- and their open topic
In particular, our maths tutors will enhance students’ knowledge and ability to achieve success with the particular content formulas and requirements for the vocational subjects they are doing at school.
