OverviewThe 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 student texts for Year 11. Pathway 1 caters for students who have completed Stage 5.1 by the end of Year 10 and are headed towards the workforce or further training after school. The course encourages the development of practical mathematical skills for life. It supports a vocational pathway that is 'content-endorsed' but not HSC-examinable. Pathway 2 is the more traditional and academic pathway, covering a revised General Maths course, for students who have completed some or all of Stage 5.2 (especially in algebra and trigonometry), and are heading towards an HSC exam, ATAR and university study. These Teacher's Blackline Masters contain over 100 worksheets from NelsonNet in hardcopy form, spiral-bound for easy photocopying. They include material for both Pathway 1 and Pathway 2 of the new General Mathematics syllabus for Year 11. The Bonus Resource Downloads section on this page contains a PowerPoint presentation 'Exploring the new Mathematics General Syllabus' and a summary of course changes written by series editor Robert Yen.
