**General Description**

The course covers every dot point from the new NSW Year 11 Mathematics Extension 1 syllabus, both old and new content. Please note that only Extension 1 content is covered, not Mathematics Advanced.

The course goes into greater detail than the textbooks, so teachers are more 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.

Part I covers ME-A1 Working with Combinatorics and ME-F1 Further Work with Functions (Part A) F1.1: Graphical relationships, 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.

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, with a 139 page course handout. There are also 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.

Part II of the series will cover the remainder of ME-F1 Further Work with Functions plus ME-F2 Polynomials.

Part III of the series will cover ME-T1 Inverse Trigonometric Functions, ME-T2 Further Trigonometric Identities & ME-C1 Rates of Change.
