Teacher SACE Stage 2 Maths Methods

"As a beginning Year 12 teacher, I am so glad I chose these training sessions. The presenter I had is surely one of the most knowledgeable teachers in the state. I can highly recommend these for teachers new to Year 12 subjects, and, to those who want to enhance their knowledge even further." D. Kildea

" I found that the content covered and the leader's ability to link between topics showed so much additional clarity that it has increased my confidence as a beginning SACE teacher. I can now give my students a very rounded and thorough understanding of the curriculum. I would highly recommend this program to any new or even existing SACE teacher" C Kemp

"Excellent. I've been teaching Year 12's for nearly 30 years and I still found lots of useful strategies I can take back to the classroom and use next week! Thank you very much for the opportunity to attend these training seminars. " Tanya


Adelaide Education Consultants has been training teachers and tutors in secondary subjects since 1980.
Our presenters are masters in their field and have a passion for their respective subjects.
Our teacher training programs focus on not only delivering current content, but in addition provide an explanation of content changes and delivery.
All teachers receive a subject teaching guide which may include a solutions Guide for the content delivered during the program.


Desired outcomes for teachers include:

1. A broader understanding of subject content.
2. A wider range of teaching methodologies to take back into the classroom.
3. Clarification on subject specific problematic topics/units.
4. Further understanding of assessment criteria and application.
5. As other attendees may include students, teachers receive real time, first hand feedback on individual student concerns.

Suitable for teachers commencing the subject for the first time or experienced practitioners wishing to expand their bank of knowledge.

An external exam is part of the assessment criteria and is weighted at 30%. ALL STUDENTS MUST STUDY TOPICS 1,2 AND 3.

Day 1. Differential Calculus covering first principles, x^n functions,exponential and log functions and trig functions.

Day 2. Applications of Differential Calculus to tangents, graphing,rates of change,kinematics and optimization.

Day 3. Integration with respect to the inverse of differentiation, areas under curves and applications to rates of change and kinematics.

Day 4. Probability Distributions for discrete and continuous data. Normal distributions.

Day 5.  Sampling and Confidence Intervals involving the central limit theorem and confidence intervals for sample means and sample proportions.

This covers all 6 topics as described in the Mathematical Methods SACE Subject Outline.


* All topics above are National Curriculum standard.

The above topics cover the Calculus content of the SACE Subject Outline and corresponds to the first half of the Haese textbook.

Students are requested to bring their Graphics Calculator.
