The new Mathematics General syllabus describes two pathways that start in Year 11. Even though both pathways share a common Preliminary course, students taking each pathway have specific learning needs, so we have published two levels of text for both Years 11 and 12. First published in 2000 and revised in 2009, New Century Maths 11 (Pathway 2) has been revised again for the new Mathematics General course commencing in NSW in 2013. This book is produced especially for students who have completed some or all of Stage 5.2(especially in algebra and trigonometry), and are heading towards the Mathematics General 2 HSC course in Year 12, ATAR and university study. This is the more traditional and academic pathway of the updated course. The printed book is supported by an interactive NelsonNetBook version of the text. Students and teachers will have access to a range of useful resources on the password-protected NelsonNet website. To download a sample chapter, Driving safely, click the Download Sample Material button. The corresponding Year 12 text, New Century Maths 12 General Mathematics 2 HSC Course, will be available in mid 2013.

This Very Short Introduction explores the rich historical and cultural diversity of mathematical practice, ranging from the distant past to the present. Historian Jacqueline Stedall shows that mathematical ideas are far from being fixed, but are adapted and changed by their passage across periods and cultures. The book illuminates some of the varied contexts in which people have learned, used, and handed on mathematics, drawing on fascinating case studies from a range of times and places, including early imperial China, the medieval Islamic world, and nineteenth-century Britain. By drawing out some common threads, Stedall provides an introduction not only to the mathematics of the past but to the history of mathematics as a modern academic discipline.
