Well I've finished the course so I have nothing to say about where the school is up to....but how can particular schools do Volumes without doing Integration first?

My school has finished Complex Numbers. We're currently doing Curve Sketching.

We had a topic test on Complex numbers this morning, and I'm pretty sure it is there to kick out people of the Extension 2 Math course. It was made long with pretty unusual questions that you'll probably never see in the HSC. I'm guessing they did this to see how well we can apply things? I think I should be fine (still glad it doesn't count towards our HSC marks anyway).

My class (of two:p) is pretty close to finishing complex numbers. Up to geometrical represention and products/quotients. Then there's only locus problems and we're done!!
Polynomials next :)

A lot of the integration required for volumes is quite easy and generally only needs 3U integration.
True, but some require integration by parts.

I think our school (well, now my old school) is upto Polynomials and is quite close to finishing it.

teacher doesn't really explain, just copies out of his book
