**Overview**

Mathematical Literacy was introduced as a subject in 2006 with 11 students and has steadily grown since then. Two classes of matrics are currently completing their studies in this subject.

**Brief Policy**

Mathematical Literacy is a choice subject in Grades 10–12. Mathematical Literacy provides students with an awareness and understanding of the role that mathematics plays in the modern world. It is a subject driven by life-related applications of mathematics. It enables students to develop the ability and confidence to think numerically and spatially in order to interpret and critically analyse everyday situations and solve problems.

**Homework**

Classwork exercises are given daily and homework is usually given daily.

**Tests and forms of Assessment**

There are 2 controlled tests in Term 1 (one open-book), 1 in Term 2 and 2 in Term 3. Other assessment includes a research project, a source-based project, assignments, worksheets, class tests and formal examinations in Term 2 and 4.**Grade 10 Information**
