The new Mathematics General syllabus describes two pathways that start in Year 11. Even though both pathways share a common Preliminary course, students taking each pathway have specific learning needs, so we have published two levels of text for both Years 11 and 12.
This addition to the successful New Century Maths series has been written for the new Mathematics General course commencing in 2013 in NSW. This book caters for the Mathematics General 1 HSC course in Year 12, for students heading towards the workforce or further training after school. This content-endorsed course is not HSC -examinable, providing mathematical skills for life. This book includes access to the NelsonNet teacher website of resources and downloadable chapter PDFs for schools that use New Century Maths 12 as a core resource.
