I don't think NESA really care. As long as they can say they are making changes that modernise their syllabuses, which follow current "best practice", and grab a headline or two along the way is all that counts.What do you think of the comment in the third document "It will be an act of vandalism if they persist."?
Man I really don't like much about what they're doing to the maths syllabi. The only things I like are: adding vectors (I would also add matrices alongside them), putting 4u graphs and volumes in 3u, removing conics and adding Euler's formula to 4u (which should've been in already).They basically took out every hard topic in 3 unit and made it easy as hell
Pretty much the only hard topics are motion and circle geo and from what I've heard they're getting removed but I haven't fully checked. I guess the last hard topic is binomial (if that's even still there).I thought 3U was becoming harder? (as well as 2U and general)
I am quite happy with the new syllabus.
But what has "Aboriginal & Torres Strait Islander Peoples", "Asia and Australia's engagement with Asia" and "Sustainabilty" got to do with the study of mathematics!
