Course Description

The course covers every dot point from MA-M1 Modelling Financial Situations in the new NSW Year 12 Mathematics Advanced syllabus. 

The course goes into greater detail than the textbooks, so teachers are more comfortable in their ability to deliver the content. All 106 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:

  • 106 recorded examples

  • 232 page course handout

  • 106 optional practice questions matching the examples from the course

  • 44 mixed questions, all with fully worked solutions

The remainder of the Year 12 Advanced syllabus is covered in four other courses:

ADV#6 Further Differentiation (MA-C2 Differential Calculus and MA-C3 Applications of Differentiation)

ADV#7 Integration (MA-C4 Integral Calculus) 

ADV#8 Functions and Trigonometric Functions (MA-F2 Graphing Techniques and MA-T3 Trigonometric Functions and Graphs)

ADV#9 Statistics (MA-S2 Descriptive Statistics and Bivariate Data Analysis and MA-S3 Random Variables)


Audience

Mathematics teachers of any experience level who are preparing to teach the new Advanced syllabus.
