Specialist Mathematics builds upon a sound knowledge of year 10 maths to develop sharp skills and a deep understanding of mathematical concepts, opening pathways to tertiary courses such as engineering, mathematical science and physical sciences. Students intending to do Specialist Mathematics at Stage 2 will need to undertake this subject in conjunction with Stage 1 Mathematical Methods 1 and 2.

Students considering to undertake Specialist Maths in stage 2 need to complete at least one semester of stage 1 Specialist Maths (in conjunction with a full year of stage 1 Math Methods) as a bare minimum requirement.
It is highly recommended however, that students enroll in the full year for stage 1 Specialist Maths, to fully prepare them for stage 2. If only 1 semester is feasible, then semester 2 is recommended over semester 1.
