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.
First published in 2001 and revised in 2010, this book has been revised again for the new Mathematics General course beginning in NSW in 2013. This book caters for the Mathematics General 2 HSC course in Year 12, an updated version of the General Mathematics course. It is designed for students heading towards an HSC exam, an ATAR and university studies. This book includes access to the NelsonNet portal of resources and an interactive NelsonNetBook.
