### Special features and programs

#### Mathematics Academic Achievers program

The Academic Achievers’ Program is a program that is differentiated from the Middle School course. Whilst it is expected that students cover core content for each term, these classes will be able to do so at a faster pace, leaving time for further development and exploration. Within the term overviews, there are topics and investigations covered only by Academic Achievers. These are included to challenge students to create a deep understanding of concepts. Students have the opportunity to challenge themselves further by participating in extra activities, for example the annual ICAS test for Mathematics, the Middle School Problem Solving Challenge and the Maths Teams Challenge.

#### Mathematics C and Start QUT

The Kelvin Grove State College Mathematics Department has a special relationship with the QUT Faculty of Building Environment and Engineering and a strong link has been established to allow students to study a university first year Engineering unit upon the satisfactory completion of Senior Mathematics C.

Students selecting to study Senior Mathematics C at Kelvin Grove are allocated an extra lesson of Mathematics C per week. This allows students to complete the required number of course hours in just 3 calendar semesters, which means students finish studying Mathematics C at the end of Semester 1 in Year 12. In the second semester of Year 12, students enrol in a first year Engineering subject, ie MAB126—Mathematics for Engineering 1 or MAB127 - Mathematics for Engineering 2.
