    Question MATH1901 and MATH1906

    Is it still possible to apply for MATH1901 and MATH1906? I can't find them on Sydney Student anywhere, only MATH1001, but I can still find https://sydney.edu.au/courses/units-.../math1906.html and https://sydney.edu.au/courses/units-.../math1901.html, apparently for 2018 entry, so I'm very confused.

    Yeah lol, if you can't enrol into them via Sydney Student, they probably aren't running. You can try emailing someone from the faculty about it (e.g. Daniel Daners), but I doubt they're running at this point.

    And also, they wouldn't run two SSP classes at the same time, so clearly MATH1906 and MATH1931 can't simultaneously be running.

    Ah, so have MATH1906 and MATH1901 effectively been replaced by MATH1931 and MATH1921 respectively? It seems that the latter courses are new, as I can't find any online resources or self-test quizzes or whatnot.

    Somewhat unrelated question, but does HSC 4U Maths not cover stuff like Taylor series, Intermediate Value Theorem, and the Mean Value Theorem? I did IB Further instead, and all the topics listed in MATH1921 were already included in the calculus option.

    Yuperinoes. MATH1921 is really just the first half of MATH1901 combined with the first half of MATH1903, and MATH1923 is the second half of those units.

    Yup; HSC Extension 2 does not cover any of those topics. Extension 2 covers a lot of miscellaneous areas of maths that are kind of interesting, but won't usually appear in a formal tertiary mathematics curriculum. So you knowing about those results will slightly put you ahead of your peers, and all the more reason to take SSP.
