Building on Mathematics Learning in Stage 5
The outcomes and content in the Stage 6 Mathematics Advanced syllabus are written with the assumption that students studying this course will have engaged with all substrands of Stage 5.1 and Stage 5.2 and with the following substrands of Stage 5.3 - Algebraic techniques, Surds and indices, Equations, Linear relationships, Trigonometry and Pythagoras’ theorem and Single variable data analysis. Consequently content in the NSW Mathematics K–10 Syllabus up to and including this level is also implicit in this syllabus. In a number of cases where content from Stage 5 is included it is in the context of review for clarity and completeness. Schools have the opportunity to review other areas of Stage 5 content as appropriate to meet the needs of students.
