General Description

The course that has arguably seen the biggest change is the Year 12 Extension One course. Some of the previous material remains. But so much is completely changed that the familiarization with the new material could prove real challenge.

This course will help overcome these difficulties. A full treatment of vectors will be provided, addressing every single dot point of the new syllabus. The required geometric proofs using vectors will be covered in full and comprehensively, as will sum, difference and scalar product of vectors.

Projectile Motion in terms of vectors will be presented, in full with teaching notes and extensive examples.

While all material in the calculus topic will be covered, particular emphasis will be given to Differential Equations and Slope Fields.

A full presentation on Bernoulli and Binomial Distributions will be made, along with Normal Approximations and Sample Proportion.

Teachers will finish the course better equipped to teach the course, with assessment ideas, sample test questions and comprehensive electronic resources.
