Overview - Mathematics Extension 2 Year 12
HSC Mathematics Extension 2 extends the boundaries of mathematics notably beyond the expected standard at the high school level, and begins to scrape the surface of first year university. The course is intended to challenge students who have excelled in Year 11 Mathematics Extension 1 to think more deeply and creatively in proving powerful mathematical results and working through more intense computation. Although the course is only treated as assumed knowledge for degrees involving a mathematics major, it is still recommended for many students interested in STEM-based degrees as the coverage of university level content provides a small, but effective head start to their coursework. It is commonly regarded as one of the hardest high-school mathematics courses in the country.
