## Course Description :

In the Western Australian curriculum for Year 10 Mathematics, students are expected to achieve proficiency in applying the four mathematical operations to algebraic fractions, solving for unknowns by substitution, and factorising and expanding the algebraic expression. They understand graphs based on mathematical relations, simple and compound interest formulas and their applications; and the probabilities of 2 and 3-step experiments. They gain fluency in investigating data sets and analyses by comparing different data sets. They understand the independence of events using Venn diagrams.

They learn to calculate the surface area of prisms, solve unknowns in practical problems using trigonometry, and solve simultaneous equations. They develop reasoning skills by formulating geometric proofs using the rules for congruence and similarity of triangles.

### Syllabus

The 3 general mathematics content strands: number and algebra, measurement and geometry, and statistics and probability, are treated according to the 4 proficiency strands of understanding, fluency, problem-solving, and reasoning.

Algebra and Numbers:

·     Money and Financial Mathematics:
·     Patterns and Algebra:
·     Linear and non-linear relationships

Measurement and geometry:

·     Using units of measurement
·     Geometric reasoning
·     Pythagoras's theorem antrigonometry

Statistics and Probability:

·     Chance
·     Data representation and interpretation

### Key features of the syllabus:

The students identify the connections between related mathematical representations of the following:

·     Simple and compound interest
·     Equations and Inequalities
·     Algebraic relations and their graphs
·     Parallel and perpendicular lines
·     Congruence and similarity

They will expand binomial expressions, factorise monic quadratic equations, solve simple quadratic equations and pairs of simultaneous linear equations, and calculate unknown angles in right-angled triangles. Identify the different data sets based on their shapes when plotted. They can analyse bivariate data with time as the independent variable. They find the probabilities of 2 and 3-step experiments and can find quartile and interquartile ranges.

### Why Edugraff

Year 10 students are treated, especially considering their career pathway options after high school and regarding their plans for university education or TAFE.

The students are given conceptual and graphical understanding of mathematical applications. Linear equations and quadratic equations are graphically explained so the students appreciate the stream of mathematics that leads to analytic geometry and further to subjects like engineering. The topics related to statistics and financial mathematics are explained considering their applications in streams that lead to computation, data analytics, finance, or accounting. Edugraff, online maths tutoring service providers in Australia, offers the greatest Mathematics Tutoring for WA Year 10 students.

## FAQ :

1. Will the tutors adapt to the student’s needs according to the academic calendar of the school?

Yes, Edugraff tutors are seasoned to adapt to specific requests and changing requirements .The tutors will need a copy of the school plan, including test dates, and the student’s regular update of what is actually happening in the school to adapt.

2. My child is falling behind in maths and does not show any interest in practicing math.

At edugraff, our aim is to make the session lively so that students get a feel of the concepts and their chains of thoughts are not broken or compromised. We encourage the student to revert to which part of that logic is weak or broken. This process brings an appreciation of how math works and the student starts showing an interest in revisiting the math problem with a new insight. We expect different children to show different levels of engagement, but we see remarkable progress for all using this approach.

3. My child has good mental skills in maths but is unable to write the steps using algebra.

The fact that the student is able to find the answer without writing the steps itself shows the skill of the student. To progress to the next level, the student will be given adequate guidance to make use of algebra and logical steps.
