Specialist Mathematics Units 1 and 2 provide a course of study for students who wish to undertake an indepth study of mathematics, emphasising concepts, skills and processes related to mathematical structure, modelling, problemsolving and reasoning. This study focuses on interest in the discipline of mathematics in its own right and investigation of a broad range of applications, as well as the development of a sound background for further studies in mathematics and mathematicsrelated fields.
Mathematical Methods Units 1 and 2 and Specialist Mathematics Units 1 and 2, taken in conjunction, provide comprehensive preparation for Specialist Mathematics Units 3 and 4. The areas of study for Units 1 and 2 of Specialist Mathematics are ‘Algebra and structure’, ‘Arithmetic and number’, ‘Discrete mathematics’, ‘Geometry, measurement and trigonometry’, ‘Graphs of linear and nonlinear relations’ and ‘Statistics’.
For Units 1 and 2, to suit the range of students entering the study and cover the four prescribed topics, content must be selected from the six areas of study using the following rules:
 For each unit, content covers four or more topics in their entirety, selected from at least three different areas of study
 Each unit must include two of the prescribed topics: Number systems and recursion; Vectors in the plane; Geometry in the plane and proof; and Graphs of nonlinear relations
 Other topics can be selected from those included in the areas of study for Specialist Mathematics Units 1 and 2 and/or General Mathematics Units 1 and 2
 Courses intended as preparation for study at the Units 3 and 4 levels should include a selection of content from areas of study that provide a suitable background for these studies
 Content from an area of study provides a clear progression in knowledge and skills from Unit 1 to Uni
In undertaking these units, students are expected to be able to apply techniques, routines and processes involving rational, real and complex arithmetic, sets, lists and tables, diagrams and geometric constructions, algebraic manipulation, equations and graphs with and without technology. They should have a facility with relevant mental and byhand approaches to estimation and computation. Using numerical, graphical, geometric, symbolic and statistical functionality of technology for teaching and learning mathematics, for working mathematically, and in related assessment is to be incorporated throughout each unit as applicable.
