Reference Sheet for use in Mathematics, Mathematics Ext 1 and Mathematics Ext 2 HSC examinations

A Reference Sheet has been developed for use in the Mathematics (‘2 Unit’), Mathematics Extension 1 and Mathematics Extension 2 HSC examinations for 2016 onwards.

It contains a range of formulae from the Mathematics and Mathematics Extension 1 courses. (No additional formulae will be available for use in the Mathematics Extension 2 HSC examination.)

The Reference Sheet, which replaces the current 'Standard Integrals' sheet, is designed as a memory aid and has been developed in accordance with the document Reference Sheet for use in the Mathematics, Mathematics Extension 1 and Mathematics Extension 2 HSC Examinations.

BOSTES acknowledges the collaboration of The Mathematical Association of NSW (MANSW) in its development, as well as consultation feedback from:

  • members of the BOSTES Examination Committee for the calculus-based Stage 6 Mathematics courses
  • staff within the Department of Education, the Catholic Education Commission, the Association of Independent Schools and the university sector.
