HSC Maths (2U) Course Summary (old syllabus)

Author: George Fisher, Publisher: Phoenix

For old syllabus

This title does NOT follow 'Stage 6 Mathematics Advanced' NSW syllabus introduced in 2017 but can be used for extra practice.

Originally published in 2001, this book was written for the previous 'Preliminary & HSC Mathematics' course, also sometimes called '2 Unit'.

Each Phoenix Course Summary provides a comprehensive and thorough summary of all the essential material for each HSC Maths course in a form which makes it simple for students to identify what they have to know for the HSC examination and to help them learn it.

They include:

  • formulas
  • theorems
  • procedures
  • worked examples

In addition, they have

  • provision for students to add their own notes from other sources - textbook, study guide, teacher
  • useful suggestions to help learn the material
  • practice questions, with answers, for each part of the course
