Perfecting foundations and skill-building - our Year 10 program is designed for Senior school success.
Year 10 English
Teaching the English curriculum should balance and integrate all three interrelated strands of Language, Literature and Literacy. These strands focus on students’ knowledge and skills in listening, reading, viewing, speaking, writing and creating. Assessments are designed to develop and refine critical writing skills by helping students evaluate and integrate ideas from texts to form their own interpretations. In this way, students will finish the year at Uplift Education prepared for more challenging assessments in their further study and beyond.
Year 10 Maths
By the end of Year 10, students recognise the connection between simple and compound interest. They solve problems involving linear equations and inequalities. They make the connections between algebraic and graphical representations of relations. Students solve surface area and volume problems relating to composite solids. They recognise the relationships between parallel and perpendicular lines. Students apply deductive reasoning to proofs and numerical exercises involving plane shapes. They compare data sets by referring to the shapes of the various data displays. They describe bivariate where the independent variable is time. Students describe statistical relationships between two continuous variables. They evaluate statistical reports.
