Using concepts of self-paced instruction the course will guide students through a carefully sequenced series of topics which will provide the foundation for the mathematics that will be encountered in higher education studies especially in creative arts and the humanities. It will provide essential basic competency in the mathematics used in modern professional workplaces. This course allows students to develop confidence with mathematics and general problem solving and study skills. Embedded within the course content will be the theme of student self-regulation of studying and learning. This will incorporate ideas, concepts and theories including academic self-efficacy, reflective practice and resilience.
