General Description

I created this course to provide teachers with a comprehensive guide to the knowledge and techniques required to teach the new NSW Mathematics Extension I Year 11 syllabus. 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 106 proofs and examples have been recorded, so that you can watch an experienced maths teacher talk through the examples and any important points to note.

Part III of the series covers ME-T1 Inverse Trigonometric Functions, ME-T2 Further Trigonometric Identities and ME-C1 Rates of Change. These topics have Functions and Calculus from Advanced as prerequisites.

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 a 175 page course handout, including an additional 106 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 I of the series covers ME-A1 Working with Combinatorics and ME-F1 Further Work with Functions (Part A) F1.1: Graphical relationships.

Part II of the series covers ME-F1 Further Work with Functions (Part B) and ME-F2 Polynomials.

Audience

Mathematics teachers of any experience level who are preparing to teach the new Extension 1 syllabus.

About the team


Steve Howard

Creator

Steve is a Mathematics Teacher at Cowra High School, a medium sized rural high school in Central West NSW, where he has taught for 25 years. He has also taught gifted and talented students online through xsel and Aurora College. He has a particular love and passion for Mathematics Extension 2, writing his own textbook and study resources for the old syllabus, to be updated for the new syllabus. He also creates study resources for Mathematics and Extension 1. He loves finding more efficient techniques for solving mathematical questions, by trawling through other teachers' solutions or making up his own approaches when there must be a better way. Steve did 4 Unit Mathematics as a student, gaining a mark of 198/200 and training as an actuary. Working in an office in the city wasn’t for him, so he went back to uni to retrain as a teacher then headed to the country, where he lives in an owner built mud house, with chickens, goats and rescued native birds (which you will sometimes hear in his recordings)!!
