Mathematics General Stage 6 Syllabus1The Higher School Certificate Program of StudyThe purpose of the Higher School Certificate program of study is to: provide a curriculum structure that encourages students to completesecondary education foster the intellectual, social and moral development of students, in particulardeveloping their: knowledge, skills, understanding and attitudes in the fields of study they choose capacity to manage their own learning desire to continue learning in formal or informal settings after school capacity to work together with others respect for the cultural diversity of Australian societyprovide a flexible structure within which students can prepare for: further education and training employment full and active participation as citizens provide formal assessment and certification of students’ achievements provide a context within which schools also have the opportunity to foster students’physical and spiritual development.2RationaleMathematics is deeply embedded in modern society. From the numeracy skills requiredto manage personal finances, to making sense of data in various forms, to leading-edgetechnologies in the sciences and engineering, mathematics provides the framework forinterpreting, analysing and predicting, and the tools for effective participation in anincreasingly complex society.The need to interpret the large volumes of data made available through technology drawson skills in logical thought and skills in checking claims and assumptions in a systematicway. Mathematics is the appropriate training ground for the development of these skills.The thinking required to enhance further the power and usefulness of technology in real-worldapplications requires advanced mathematical training. The rapid advances in technologyexperienced in recent years have driven, and been driven by, advances in the disciplineof mathematics.The development of mathematics throughout history has been catalysed by its utility inexplaining real-world phenomena and its inherent beauty. In this way, the discipline hascontinued to evolve through a process of observation, conjecture, proof and application.Effective participation in a changing society is enhanced by the development of mathematicalcompetence in contextualised problem-solving. Experience in such problem-solving is gainedby students gathering, analysing and interpreting mathematical information, and applyingmathematics to model situations.5

Mathematics General Stage 6 SyllabusThe opportunities for creative thinking, communication and contextualised problem-solvingwithin the Preliminary Mathematics General course, the HSC Mathematics General 2 courseand the HSC Mathematics General 1 course assist students in finding solutions for the broadrange of problems encountered in life beyond secondary schooling.The purpose of the courses is to provide an appropriate mathematical background forstudents who wish to enter occupations that require the use of a variety of mathematicaland statistical techniques. As well as introducing some new mathematical content, thevarious Focus Studies within the courses give students the opportunity to apply, and developfurther, the knowledge, skills and understanding initially developed in the various Strands:Financial Mathematics, Data and Statistics, Measurement, Probability, and Algebra andModelling. Through the Focus Studies, students develop the capacity to integrate theirknowledge, skills and understanding across the Strands in contemporary contexts chosenfor their ongoing relevance to the students’ everyday lives and likely vocational pathways.The Preliminary Mathematics General course, the HSC Mathematics General 2 courseand the HSC Mathematics General 1 course are highly contextualised. The PreliminaryMathematics General course contains the five Strands as well as two Focus Studies:Mathematics and Communication, and Mathematics and Driving. It is structured to provideappropriate pathways to both the HSC Mathematics General 2 course and the HSCMathematics General 1 course.Preliminary Mathematics General provides an appropriate course of study for students whohave demonstrated competence in mathematics up to and including at least Stage 5.1 by theend of Year 10. The two Focus Studies within the course have been designed for one-thirdof the course time.The HSC Mathematics General 2 course has been written on the assumption that studentshave demonstrated a high level of competence in the Preliminary Mathematics Generalcourse. The two Focus Studies within the course – Mathematics and Health, andMathematics and Resources – have been designed for one-third of the course time.The course provides students with the opportunity to develop an understanding of andcompetence in further aspects of mathematics through a large variety of real-worldapplications for a range of concurrent HSC studies, such as in the life sciences, thehumanities and business studies. The course also provides a strong foundation forvocational pathways, in the workforce and in further training, and for university coursesin the humanities, nursing and paramedical sciences.The HSC Mathematics General 1 course has been written to meet the needs of studentswho have demonstrated competence in the Preliminary Mathematics General course.The four Focus Studies within the course – Mathematics and Design, Mathematics andHousehold Finance, Mathematics and the Human Body, and Mathematics and PersonalResource Usage – have been designed for two-thirds of the course time. The courseprovides students with the opportunity to develop an understanding of and competencein further aspects of mathematics through a large variety of real-world applications forconcurrent HSC studies, such as in vocational education and training courses, otherpractically oriented courses, and some humanities courses, and for vocational pathways,in the workforce or in further training.6

Mathematics General Stage 6 Syllabus4Mathematics in Stage 64.1CoursesFor the Higher School Certificate, there are three Board Developed mathematics courses forstudy as Preliminary Year courses: (in increasing order of difficulty) Preliminary MathematicsGeneral, Preliminary Mathematics (‘2 Unit’), and Preliminary Mathematics Extension. Thereare four Board Developed Courses and one Content Endorsed Course (CEC) for studyas HSC Year courses: (in increasing order of difficulty) Mathematics General 1 (CEC),Mathematics General 2, Mathematics (‘2 Unit’), Mathematics Extension 1, and MathematicsExtension 2.Students of the two Mathematics General pathways study the preliminary course, PreliminaryMathematics General, followed by either the HSC Mathematics General 2 course or theHSC Mathematics General 1 course.Mathematics (‘2 Unit’) consists of the courses Preliminary Mathematics (‘2 Unit’) and HSCMathematics (‘2 Unit’). Students studying one or both Extension courses study the course,Preliminary Mathematics Extension, before undertaking the study of HSC MathematicsExtension 1, or HSC Mathematics Extension 1 and HSC Mathematics Extension 2.The following assumptions and recommendations regarding Stage 5 Mathematics, typicallyundertaken by students in Years 9 and 10, are provided in relation to the suite of Stage 6Mathematics courses.The Preliminary Mathematics General course has been constructed on the assumptionthat students have studied the content and achieved the outcomes of the MathematicsYears 7–10 Syllabus (2002) up to, and including, the content and outcomes of Stage 5.1.For students who intend to study the HSC Mathematics General 2 course, it is recommendedthat they experience at least some of the Stage 5.2 content, particularly the Patterns andAlgebra topics and Trigonometry, if not all of the content.The Mathematics (‘2 Unit’) course has been constructed on the assumption that studentshave studied the content and achieved the outcomes of the Mathematics Years 7–10Syllabus (2002) up to, and including, the content and outcomes of Stage 5.2. Wherepossible, it is recommended that they also experience the topics Real Numbers, AlgebraicTechniques and Coordinate Geometry, as well as at least some of Trigonometry fromStage 5.3 (identified by §), if not all of the content.The Preliminary Mathematics Extension and HSC Mathematics Extension 1 courses havebeen constructed on the assumption that students have studied the content and achieved theoutcomes of the Mathematics Years 7–10 Syllabus (2002) up to, and including, the contentand outcomes of Stage 5.3. Where possible, it is recommended that they also experience theoptional topics (identified by #) Curve Sketching and Polynomials, Functions and Logarithms,and Circle Geometry.The Mathematics Extension 2 course consists of an HSC course (only) and may beundertaken following completion of the Preliminary Mathematics (‘2 Unit’) and PreliminaryMathematics Extension courses. Students may study the Mathematics Extension 2 courseconcurrently with, or following completion of, the HSC Mathematics Extension 1 course.The preliminary and HSC courses undertaken by students who study the PreliminaryMathematics General/HSC Mathematics General 1 pathway, the Preliminary MathematicsGeneral/HSC Mathematics General 2 pathway, or Mathematics (‘2 Unit’), and by studentswho study mathematics in Stage 6 to Mathematics Extension 1 or Mathematics Extension 2level, are illustrated on the following pages.8
