SACE Stage 2 Essential Mathematics – Measurement

2.1 Linear Measure
2.2 Area Measure
2.3 Mass, volume and Capacity

Students extend the concepts from Topic 5: Measurement in Stage 1 Essential Mathematics to include practical problems in two dimensions involving circles, polygons, and composite shapes and in three dimensions involving cones, cylinders, pyramids, and spheres. Methods for estimating the size of irregular areas and volumes are investigated.

Through studying Pythagoras’ theorem and the trigonometry of right and non-right triangles, students solve for unknown sides and angles in triangle problems posed in everyday and workplace contexts. Students solve problems involving calculating volume, mass, and density in practical contexts.
