I'm predicting around 68/84 (hopefully 75-80%). I just hope probability doesn't stuff me. Whats the go with people who do 4U? Do we get scaled differently for Ext1?
Oh, and whats the go with this E(number) stuff. Is it some sort of special band?
Bands for extension subjects are different because extensions are out of 50 not 100. So you get an E and then a number...i'm not sure how high the numbers go (maybe 5?) or how many marks put you in each band though...i was actually wondering that myself...i will look it up if you give me a sec...
okay...this is off BOS from last year's paper... the % are how the percentage of kids that got in each band last year.
2 unit Mathematics Extension 1
2006 Candidature - 9053
Band E4 (30.33%)
Exhibits extensive knowledge and skills appropriate to the Mathematics and Mathematics Extension 1 courses. Synthesises mathematical techniques, results and ideas creatively across the Mathematics and Mathematics Extension 1 courses to solve difficult problems. Uses sophisticated multi-step mathematical reasoning. Interprets, explains, justifies and evaluates solutions to problems. Translates efficiently between practical problems and their mathematical model. Communicates complex ideas and arguments effectively using appropriate mathematical language, notation, diagrams and graphs.
Band E3 (41.20%)
Exhibits knowledge and skills appropriate to the Mathematics and Mathematics Extension 1 courses. Synthesises mathematical techniques, results and ideas from across the Mathematics and Mathematics Extension 1 courses to solve problems in areas such as geometry, calculus and probability. Uses multi-step mathematical reasoning such as mathematical induction. Translates between practical problems and their mathematical model in areas such as projectile motion. Communicates effectively using appropriate mathematical language, notation, diagrams and graphs.
Band E2 (19.44%)
Exhibits knowledge of the techniques of the Mathematics and Mathematics Extension 1 courses. Uses techniques of integration from the Mathematics Extension 1 course such as integration by substitution. Uses logical reasoning in numerical contexts such as problems in algebra and geometry. Applies calculus to solve practical problems. Communicates using mathematical language, notation, diagrams and graphs.
Band E1 (8.66%) A mark in this band indicates that the student has achieved below the minimum standard expected.
