Building on Mathematics Learning in Stage 5
The outcomes and content in the Stage 6 Mathematics Standard syllabus are written with the assumption that students studying this course will have engaged with all substrands of Stage 5.1 and with the following substrands of Stage 5.2 - Financial mathematics, Linear relationships, Non-linear relationships, Area and surface area, Volume, Right-angled triangles (Trigonometry) and Single variable data analysis and at least some of the content from the following 5.2 substrands – Equations and Probability. 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.
