AMSI monitoring of participation in Year 12 mathematics
- Over the last two decades, the proportion of Year 12 students taking some mathematics has remained at roughly 80%.
- However, both the number and proportion of Year 12 students now taking Advanced mathematics is much lower than in 1995: there has been a significant shift to the non-calculus mathematics subjects.
- Females continue to be outnumbered by males (almost 2:1) in Year 12 Advanced mathematics.
- This data-collection project began with AustMS, but ongoing monitoring of Year 12 participation rates is now done by AMSI.
