HSC Mathematics (Ext 1)

3 Unit Mathematics

HSC Mathematics Extension 1 is the second highest level of maths completed at high school in New South Wales. Students sit two HSC exams; HSC Mathematics Extension 1 (2 hours) and HSC Mathematics Advanced (3 hours). 

As part of the content from Advanced Mathematics students will investigate topics such as Integral Calculus, Advanced Trigonometry, Financial Mathematics, Radom Variables and The Normal Distribution.

The course introduces students to more advanced mathematics topics such as Differential Equations, Advanced Trigonometry, Vectors and the Binomial Distribution.

The course aims to give students an introduction to higher levels of applied mathematics. It also provides the basis to further studies in STEM degrees at University. In fact many degrees mandate Mathematics Extension 1 as the minimum required for the degree.

Our courses are all inclusive - this means we teach all the relevant topics from HSC Mathematics Extension 1 and HSC Mathematics Advanced.
