Overview

Inverse Functions and Inverse Trigonometric Functions are core concepts in Year 12 Mathematics Extension 1 as defined by the NSW Senior Mathematics syllabus.  We help students find connections between mathematical techniques, results and ideas. We demonstrate how to solve complex problems and communicate ideas and arguments using appropriate notation and graphs.
