General Description

The Year 12 Mathematics Advanced Course will provide several obstacles for teachers and students alike. The extended treatment of graphing functions will be made easier with electronic resources that can be use to deliver the new material to students comprehensively and with premade electronic resources. This will be extended to cover Exponential, Logarithmic and Trigonometric Functions.

A detailed treatment of the calculus of these functions along with applications will inform teachers of what is expected and how to achieve it. The new material on annuities will be covered in detail along with present and future value.

Most important will be a comprehensive coverage of the new Statistical Analysis topic. Included will be Bivariate Data Sets, Correlation Coefficients, Best Fit, Linear Regression and Continuous Random Variables.

Ideas for investigations will also be presented, along with sample test questions and electronic resources.
