About This Course
From data distribution to random sampling, this course is designed to provide a review of advanced mathematical topics that you could expect to encounter when sitting for the VCE Further Mathematics exam. You will go over how to use charts and tables for data representation, statistical and linear relationships, financial calculations and formulas, types and uses of matrices, and graph concepts and functions. Lessons also provide an overview of geometric solids, circles and arcs, trigonometric concepts and measurement.
About the Exam
VCE exams are administered to Victorian students upon completion of their secondary school studies. The VCE Further Mathematics exam consists of two examinations. Examination 1 contains 24 multiple-choice questions and totals 40 marks. Examination 2 has two sections of short- and extended-answer questions and totals 60 marks. Students will have three hours to complete both examinations (one hour and 30 minutes for each exam) and are allotted 15 minutes reading time for each exam. The maximum score one can achieve is 50; a score of 23-37 places a student in the middle range and a score of 38 or over places one in the top 15%.
VCE Further Mathematics Exam Preparation & Registration
This comprehensive study guide is a valuable resource you can use when preparing for the VCE Further Mathematics exam. It offers a quick and easy way to review such topics as random selection, populations and samples, categorical and quantitative data and how to use charts and tables to represent them, statistical calculations, correlation and causation, time series plots, and linear and non-linear relationships and data. You will also review how to calculate finances such as loan payments, mortgages, interest rates and present and future value. Other lessons cover geometric solids and spherical shapes, graphing steps and functions, networking problem solving methods and linear programming. Each lesson provides expert instruction, 24/7 accessibility from any device and the ability to contact instructors with questions. Self-assessment quizzes measure how much you know and your readiness in taking this VCE exam.
Taking VCE exams is a requirement of Victorian students, so there is no formal registration process needed to take the VCE Further Mathematics exam. The Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority determines the date of each exam every year.
The VCE Biology exam is administered by the Victorian Curriculum and Assessment Authority (VCAA), which is not affiliated with Study.com.
