**General Description**

The course is the second of two that cover every dot point from MA-F1 Working with Functions the new NSW Year 11 Mathematics Advanced syllabus. The second covers parts of F1.2: Introduction to functions and F1.3: Linear, quadratic and cubic functions, and all of F1.4: Further functions and relations. The course goes into greater detail than the textbooks, so teachers are more comfortable in their ability to deliver the content. All 130 examples have been recorded, so that you can watch an experienced Maths teacher talk through the examples and any important points to note. New and existing content is explored in detail, including interesting and more efficient techniques that experienced teachers may not have seen before. Important points to be covered with students are noted, and the limits of the syllabus are discussed. As more detail on the syllabus is released by NESA any changes required will be made. Also included are related skills that are beyond the syllabus that you can use to extend more capable students.

Each lesson includes a section for Extension Students, that covers work that can help them develop skills and techniques that helps prepare them for content they will cover in the Extension 1 or Extension 2 courses.

The course includes 130 recorded examples, with a 300 page course handout. There are also 130 optional practice questions matching the examples from the course, and another exercise of 73 mixed questions, all with fully worked solutions.

The Year 11 Advanced syllabus is covered in a total of five courses:

ADV#1 and ADV#2 cover MA-F1 Working with Functions.

ADV#3 will cover MA-T1 Trigonometry and Measure of Angles and MA-T2 Trigonometric Functions and Identities

ADV#4 will cover MA-C1 Introduction to Differentiation.

ADV#5 will cover MA-E1 Logarithms and Exponentials and MA-S1 Probability and Discrete Probability Distributions
