CST7001 Mathematics for Living (KUMBN)


Semester 1 (EXT)Toowoomba

Semester 2 (EXT)Toowoomba


Units 1.0 (Mathematics) Band 2


Synopsis

Using concepts of self-paced instruction, the course aims to give the student a carefully sequenced series of topics, which will provide the foundation for mathematics that will be encountered in tertiary studies detailed above. The self-paced structure allows students to work at their own pace developing confidence with effective and efficient mathematical problem solving skills. In addition, content of selective modules is a culturally relevant way to represent and portray an Indigenous perspective of how mathematical forms are used within their communities, families, language, culture and traditional practices. Hence, Indigenous students will feel comfortable and will relate to the appropriate use of mathematical language and understanding of mathematical processes and concepts from an Indigenous and non-Indigenous view. As a result, this will ensure that students become successful and maintain interest within the arena of mathematics.
