Course Description
This course covers every dot point of MEA1 Working with Combinatorics and MEF1 Further Work with Functions (F1.1: Graphical Relationships) from the new NSW Year 11 Mathematics Extension 1 syllabus (both new and old content). Please note that only Extension 1 content is covered, not Mathematics Advanced. These are two topics that can be taught without prerequisites from the Advanced course. Teachers of classes that include Extension and Advanced students may choose to start their Extension students with one of these topics.
The course goes into greater detail than the textbooks, so that teachers become comfortable in their ability to deliver the content. All 127 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.
The course includes:

127 recorded examples

139 page course handout

127 optional practice questions matching the examples from the course, with fully worked solutions
A suggested scope and sequence for Year 11 Advanced and Extension 1 for combined classes is provided, plus a lesson by lesson breakdown of the Advanced, Extension 1 and Extension 2 courses for Year 11 and 12 to help you create your own scope and sequences.
The remainder of the Mathematics Extension 1 syllabus, is covered in four other courses:
EXT1#2 of the series covers the remainder of MEF1 Further Work with Functions plus MEF2 Polynomials.
Ext1#3 covers MET1 Inverse Trigonometric Functions, MET2 Further Trigonometric Identities & MEC1 Rates of Change.
Ext1#4 (Year 12) covers MEP1 Proof by Mathematical Induction and MEV1 Introduction to Vectors.
Ext1#5 (Year 12) covers MET3 Trigonometric Equations, MEC2 Further Calculus Skills, MEC3 Applications of Calculus and MES1 The Binomial Distribution.
Audience
Mathematics teachers of any experience level who are preparing to teach the new Extension 1 syllabus.
