Providing the widest choice of courses to suit the learning needs of gifted boys
Courses and Subject Choices
Subject selection booklets for Year 9 and Years 11-12 can be downloaded from the file repository.
The study of mathematics at Normanhurst Boys High School involves cohort-wide enrichment and acceleration, with a possibility of extra acceleration under exceptional circumstances.
Course outlines and learning programs for each year can be found in the file repository.
In Years 7-8, the Stage 4 Mathematics curriculum is supplemented by acceleration parts of Stage 5 (such as area and volume, advanced algebraic techniques and indices) as well as enrichment activities to engage the boys.
In Years 9-10, the Stage 5.1-5.3 course is the only course offered.
During these two years, all of the option topics in the Stage 5.3 syllabus are taught to equip our students for even more rigorous senior courses.
The Year 11 and 12 courses offered are:
- Mathematics 2 Unit (ceases in 2019) – Year 11 and 12
- Mathematics Advanced (from 2019) – Year 11 and 12
- Mathematics Extension 1 – Year 11 and 12
- Mathematics Extension 2 – Year 12 only
