Maths and Engineering Acceleration program 2018

  • Published on February 16, 2017
  • Indooroopilly State High School has always attracted high achieving students in Mathematics. Students entering our school at the Year 7 level have the opportunity to join our Maths and Engineering Acceleration program.

    Why join this innovative and challenging program?

    This program takes students through the Mathematics curriculum in a shorter time than the usual six years. It  incorporates broad ranging enrichment activities and exposes students to pathways which are mathematically oriented.

    The program, which includes University of Queensland-linked studies, is designed to foster and enable students with high mathematical ability to perform at their best.

    The program covers the Queensland Curriculum and Assessment Authority (QCAA) secondary Mathematics course as follows:
    Junior Mathematics completed by Year 9
    Senior Mathematics B and Senior Mathematics C completed in Years 10 and 11
    Engineering Technology completed in Years 11 and 12
    University Mathematics subjects commenced in Year 12

    For more details please download the Special Programs Year 7 brochure.

    To qualify for the program, students need to perform well in the Australian Council for Educational Research (ACER) test. The test procedures have changed: there will only be one round of test in 2017, this will be on on Friday, June 9, 2017. Applications have now closed for the 2018 Maths and Engineering Program.

    To register for the test or for further details, please contact Kim Milford, Head of Department Maths and Engineering on
