27/03/2018

Prerequisites

Students who intend to study the Mathematics Standard 2 course in Year 12 must study all Mathematics Standard Year 11 course content.

How is the new syllabus different?

Under the new syllabus, there’s a greater emphasis on the application of mathematics compelling students to solve problems regarding the needs of the present and future (such as to meet the needs of an increasingly STEM-focused workforce) as well as to be able to communicate it succinctly and systematically. This is achieved by

  • New Assessment Practices:
    • mandatory components and weightings for both Year 11 and Year 12 courses
    • a maximum limit of formal assessment tasks (Year 11 – Three & Year 12 – Four)
    • a maximum limit of one formal written examination task that emulate the HSC
  • Content Changes:
    • Topics such as ‘Similar figures & trigonometry’ & ‘Investing money’ are no longer taught and are replaced with new topics.
