I'd be really happy with the syllabus if they didn't remove circle geo from 3u

Besides that I really like it.

Has there been any word from MANSW regarding the new syllabuses?

The syllabuses have now been updated today.

New versions are available here:

Standard: http://syllabus.nesa.nsw.edu.au/assets/mathematics_standard/mathematics-standard-stage-6-syllabus-2017.pdf

Extension 1: http://educationstandards.nsw.edu.au/wps/portal/nesa/11-12/stage-6-learning-areas/stage-6-mathematics/mathematics-extension-1-new-syllabus

Extension 2: http://educationstandards.nsw.edu.au/wps/portal/nesa/11-12/stage-6-learning-areas/stage-6-mathematics/mathematics-extension-2-new-syllabus

In particular the Standard one replaces

"Students of the Mathematics Standard 1 and Mathematics Standard 2 courses study a common Year 11 course, Mathematics Standard Year 11, leading to the Mathematics Standard 1 Year 12 and Mathematics Standard 2 Year 12 courses. Schools have flexibility in providing alternate approaches to Mathematics Standard in Year 11 to address material essential for Mathematics Standard 1 in Year 12. This material is denoted by the symbol &loz;. Students who follow the &loz; pathway in Year 11 Mathematics Standard will only be eligible for Mathematics Standard 1 in Year 12."

with

"Students studying the Mathematics Standard syllabus undertake a common course in Year 11. For the Year 12 course students can elect to study either Mathematics Standard 1 or Mathematics Standard 2. Students who intend to study the Mathematics Standard 2 course in Year 12 must study all Mathematics Standard Year 11 course content. Students who intend to study the Mathematics Standard 1 course in Year 12 must have studied the content identified by the symbol &loz; which forms the foundation of course. This content is important for the development and consolidation of numeracy skills."

In Advanced, the formula for variance which was in the Glossary has now been relocated in the body of the syllabus.

In Extension 1, The t-formulae in the recently published version of new Stage 6 Mathematics Extension 1 syllabus for implementation in 2019 that were presented in terms of θ will be changed to be expressed in terms of A

This is a bit dumb but are areas w.r.t. the y-axis still in the maths advanced syllabus? I can't find it.

(Can find appropriate volumes in ext 1)

C4.2: Areas and the definite integral (page 59).
Looks like it says "area under curve" which implied just x-axis to me?

Unless "under" actually includes "to the left of" as well

calculate areas between curves determined by any functions within the scope of this syllabus
wouldn't this count?

I interpreted that as something like

$\bg_white Find the area between the curves y=x^2 and y=1-x^2$

Does anyone know if the year 11 content is also examinable for the new calculus syllabuses?

Yes it is.
