The first HSC examination for the new Mathematics Standard Stage 6 syllabus will be held. The Mathematics Standard 2 examination specifications can be found in the Assessment. and Reporting in Mathematics Standard Stage 6 document. The examination will focus on the Mathematics Standard 2 Year 12 course objectives and. outcomes Questions may require candidates to integrate knowledge understanding and. skills developed through studying the course The Mathematics Standard Year 11 course. content will be assumed knowledge for this examination and may be used to examine. Year 12 outcomes, There is no expectation that all the Year 12 content will be examined each year In any. given year the examination will test a representative sample of the Year 12 content. The following sample questions provide examples of some questions that may be found. in HSC examinations for Mathematics Standard 2 Each question has been mapped to. show how the sample question relates to syllabus outcomes and content Answers for. the objective response questions Section I and marking guidelines for the short answer. questions Section II are provided The marking guidelines indicate the criteria associated. with each mark or mark range, In the examination students will record their answers to Section I on a multiple choice. answer sheet and their answers to Section II in the spaces provided on the examination. The sample questions annotations and marking guidelines provide teachers and students. with guidance as to the types of questions to expect and how they may be marked They are. not meant to be prescriptive Each year the structure of the examination may differ in the. number and type of questions or focus on different syllabus outcomes and content. Comments in coloured boxes are annotations for the purpose of providing guidance for. future examinations, In this set of sample questions some stimuli are used in both Section I and Section II This. is to illustrate how the same content area can be examined differently. Teachers and students should still refer to past HSC examination papers for examples of. other questions that may be included,Past examination This is NOT a. papers provide complete sample,Section I guidance for other examination paper.

If information required to answer,B 25 minutes a question is not available on the.
C 90 minutes Reference Sheet it may be provided,with the question. D 120 minutes, This question uses Year 11 content to examine a Year 12 outcome. The Mathematics Standard Year 11 course content will be assumed knowledge for this. examination and may be used to examine Year 12 outcomes. This question is based on new content, 6 The network diagram represents a system of roads connecting a shopping centre to the. on ramp of a freeway Traffic moves via several routes For example there are two. routes from the shopping centre to P and one route from T to U The number on the edge. of each road indicates the number of vehicles that can travel on it per hour. 70 65 45 T,Shopping P 30 63,Centre R 50, At present the capacity of the network from the shopping centre to the on ramp is not. Which additional road s would increase the network capacity to its maximum. A A road from P to U with a capacity of 20 vehicles per hour. B A road from Q to T with a capacity of 20 vehicles per hour. C A road from R to T with a capacity of 20 vehicles per hour and a road from T to U. with a capacity of 40 vehicles per hour, D A road from Q to U with a capacity of 20 vehicles per hour and a road from S to U.
with a capacity of 20 vehicles per hour, Question 17 is a short answer question based on the same stimulus and demonstrates. another method of examining similar knowledge and skills. This question is based on new content,Sample HIGHER SCHOOL CERTIFICATE. Questions EXAMINATION Questions in Section II may,contain parts There will be. 35 to 40 items and at least,two items will be worth 4 or.

Trapezoidal rule,Question 17 3 marks, The network diagram represents a system of roads connecting a shopping centre to 3.
the on ramp of a freeway Traffic moves via several routes For example there are. two routes from the shopping centre to P and one route from T to U The number on. the edge of each road indicates the number of vehicles that can travel on it per hour. 70 65 45 T,Shopping P 30 63,Centre R 50, At present the capacity of the network from the shopping centre to the on ramp is not. maximised It is not possible to construct a road directly between the shopping centre. and the on ramp, Suggest ONE way that the network capacity can be maximised with additional. road s Justify your answer, An alternative question that examines similar knowledge and skills. Draw additional road s on the diagram to maximise the network. capacity Include the number of vehicles that can travel on each road. A response in this section may need to be expressed in a particular. format such as text graphs tables diagrams calculations. A combination of these formats may also be required. Question 6 is a multiple choice question based on the same stimulus. and demonstrates another method of examining similar knowledge and. This question is based on new content,Question 18 9 marks. The diagram shows three towns X Y and Z Town Z is due east of Town X The. bearing of Town Y from Town X is N39 E and the bearing of Town Z from Town Y. is S51 E The distance between Town X and Town Y is 1330 km. A plane flies between the three towns, a Mark the given information on the diagram and explain why XYZ is 90 2.
b If the speed of the plane is 570 km h how long does the flight take from Town X 2. to Town Y in hours and minutes, c Find the distance between Town X and Town Z to the nearest kilometre 2. Students should show all relevant working in responses involving. calculations This ensures that marks can be allocated for working. even if the student s final answer is incorrect,Question 18 continues on page 12. Question 18 continued, d The plane is going to fly from Town Y to Town X stopping at Town Z on the 3. way Leaving Town Y the pilot incorrectly sets the bearing of Town Z to S50 E. The pilot flies for 1650 km before realising the mistake then changes course. and flies directly to Town X without going to Town Z. From where the pilot changes course is it a shorter or longer distance to Town X. than if the plane had flown from Town Z to Town X, Whenever possible question parts are sequenced in order of difficulty. An incorrect answer in a previous part will not necessarily preclude students from. achieving full marks in a later part, Question 18 parts a c are common to Mathematics Standard 1 Question 12 parts a c.
