Matrix Academic Resources refer to any printed and online course materials copyrighted to Matrix Education made available to Matrix Education students and includes and is not limited to theory books, workbooks, quizzes and topic tests, short course notes, revision booklets, and online materials on the Matrix Learning Management System (LMS).
|Theorybooks and Workbooks||Rules|
|Matrix LMS (Online resources)||A student who has enrolled for a term course will receive an invitation to join the course online on the Matrix LMS.|
A student will continue to have access to their online resources for the courses they have undertaken at Matrix Education until the end of the academic year at Matrix.
If a student enrols in a Matrix course as an accelerated student, they will not continue to have access to the LMS resources after the end of the academic year they were enrolled in.
For example a year 11 student enrols and undertakes the UMAT course at Matrix Education. They will not have access or permissions for the Matrix UMAT LMS resources into year 12 unless they re-enrol in the UMAT course in year 12.
See below under the “Copyright” section in this Resources Policy for more information on what constitutes permissible use of Matrix Academic Resources.
|Topic tests||Students who are enrolled in a Matrix term or holiday accelerated course will be issued a topic test at the end of every term in the final lessons. In some cases, the topic test may not take place in the final lesson and the students will be invited to sit the examination at a later, pre-determined date. In the case of some senior maths classes, a topic test may occur mid-term, depending on the course outcomes as set by the Academic Coordinator. .|
