Overview

Students entering into Bachelor of Science, Health, Coursework master programs or Psychology need to apply their B level mathematical and communication skills to think critically in order to participate in lectures and tutorials and to successfully complete assessment tasks. Students also need to be numerate and have a basic understanding of functional relationships, computer skills and clarification of data if they are to operate successfully at the tertiary level. This course also introduces students to independent study and learning skills that are vital to successful completion of a tertiary level programme. This course is designed to allow students to: practice using both academic English and academic numeracy in the macro skills of reading, writing, listening and speaking; develop confidence and reduce anxiety in both academic English and numeracy; develop critical thinking through a variety of problem solving sessions.

The course consists of a series of group oriented problem solving sessions where students at the Maths B level practice reading, writing, listening, speaking, academic numeracy and computer skills. Students will submit reports, worksheets and learning activities designed around the degree students wish to enter. This course will provide students with basic mathematical competencies at level B in preparation for tertiary studies.
