Mathematics

The Top Scope College’s VCE Mathematics course is an accelerated program focused on developing the students’:

  • Logical and critical thinking necessary for complex problem solving
  • In depth calculator training (CAS or Casio)
  • Effective work habits and ethics
  • Intuitive understanding of mathematical concepts as opposed to memorizing formulas 

 

We provide:

  • Large library of trial exams for revision and consolidation of learnt content.

  • Weekly application material and notes to support your learning.
  • Weekly small group tutorial sessions allowing you to learn at your own pace.

 

The VCE mathematics curriculum is divided into 3 subjects, each having a different learning focus:

 

Further Mathematics: 

There are two cores and two selective modules. The core modules, which are compulsory for all students taking further mathematics include:

  •        Data Analysis
  •        Recursion and Financial Modelling

Two more selective modules are to be completed on top of the cores. These modules include:

  •        Graphs and relations
  •        Networks and decision mathematics
  •        Geometry and Measurement
  •        Matrices 

Each of the selective modules will comprise 20 percent of the course mark. 

 

Mathematics Methods:

Methods explores the application of the following key concepts:

  •        Functions
  •        Trigonometry
  •        Algebra
  •        Calculus
  •        Probability
  •        Statistics

Maths Methods differs from Further Maths in its application of more abstract and theoretical concepts, such as algebra and calculus.

 

Specialist Mathematics:

Specialist Maths is designed to extend further with the concepts taught in Maths Methods, exploring all of Methods’ concepts in greater detail and with the addition of other new ones.

The key concepts include:

  •        Rational and quotient functions
  •        Complex numbers
  •        Calculus
  •        Vectors
  •        Differential equations
  •        Mechanics
  •        Statistical inference

Study of Specialist Mathematics assumes concurrent study or previous completion of Mathematical Methods Units 3 and 4.



Physics

The Top Scope VCE Physics course focuses on helping students:

  • Tackle explanation and problem-based questions
  • Build students exam technique, subject skills and self-confidence by getting extensive practice with a wide range of VCE Physics Trial papers and exam style questions
  • Develop a range of inquiry skills involving research and analytical skills including critical and creative thinking, and communication skill
  • Communicate clearly and accurately an understanding of the disciplines using appropriate terminology, conventions and formats

We provide:

  • Large library of trial exams for revision and consolidation of learnt content.
  • Revision lectures for both Units 1&2 and 3&4.
  • Weekly application material and notes to support your learning.
  • Weekly small group tutorial sessions allowing you to learn at your own pace.

 

Some of the key difficult concepts of the course that we aim to help you tackle include:

  • Special relativity
  • Electromagnetic induction
  • Projectile motion
  • Wave-particle duality

 

The main component of our course is to review Year 11 and Year 12 VCE Physics, teach exam skills and provide clear guidance and feedback of students’ performance.

 


 

Chemistry

The Top Scope VCE Chemistry course helps students develop:

  • a range of investigative inquiry skills involving practical experimentation
