General Description

The new Extension 2 Mathematics Course will challenge teachers in a variety of ways. The new Proofs topic will require students to be able to demonstrate skills in Mathematical Induction, Inequations, and Proof by Contradiction to name a few. We will comprehensively consider the main ideas.

3D vectors and the equations of vectors will also receive a detailed coverage, including a demonstration of how to use Geogebra to add clarity and insight into both the mathematics and teaching of new this new material.

While Complex Numbers is the topic with least change, particular emphasis will be made on polar and exponential forms and the relationship between them.

Calculus in this course relies heavily on integration techniques and these will be treated in depth.

The Mechanics in Extension 2 will see new ideas introduced. We will look at Simple Harmonic Motion, resisted motion and also at Projectiles in a resisted medium. Teachers will complete the day with anew found confidence to present this challenging material.

This confidence will be boosted by the provision of sample test questions, assessment ideas and comprehensive electronic resources,

The course present was a high quality course that was extremely relevent to the new Extension 2 Mathematics Syllabus. Morris Needleman was very experienced in the course content and knowledgable about the new syllabuses.

The presenter attempted to cater for a wide range of abilities in the group. The input and discussions were relevant and informative.

Quality was good. Easy, friendly and lot’s of room for discussion and the sharing of others experience/understanding.
Definitely relevant to the X2 course, although probably not entirely what I was seeking. I was hoping for more emphasis or time on the assessment side of things – particularly related to the new investigative style assessment which are now required.
There was obviously a range of needs amongst those in the room, and this day did tread the middle ground, but would probably be better if there was two different courses.
One for ‘newbies’ and another more focussed on what is now different ... if that makes sense?

Quality was good however there was more emphasis on past assessment and little on current assessment practices
