GENERAL 2 MATHEMATICS  OUTCOMES
MG2H1 uses mathematics and statistics to evaluate and construct arguments in a range of familiar and unfamiliar contexts MG2H2 analyses representations of data in order to make inferences, predictions and conclusions MG2H3 makes predictions about situations based on mathematical models, including those involving cubic, hyperbolic or exponential functions MG2H4 analyses twodimensional and threedimensional models to solve practical problems, including those involving spheres and nonrightangled triangles MG2H5 interprets the results of measurements and calculations and makes judgements about reasonableness, including the degree of accuracy of measurements and calculations and the conversion to appropriate units MG2H6 makes informed decisions about financial situations, including annuities and loan repayments MG2H7 answers questions requiring statistical processes, including the use of the normal distribution, and the correlation of bivariate data MG2H8 solves problems involving counting techniques, multistage events and expectation MG2H9 chooses and uses appropriate technology to locate and organise information from a range of contexts MG2H10 uses mathematical argument and reasoning to evaluate conclusions drawn from other sources, communicating a position clearly to others, and justifies a response MG2HVA appreciates the importance of mathematics in everydaylife and its usefulness in contributing to society
