Overview

This course is designed to provide students with the basic mathematical and physics competencies in English for entry into Science, Engineering and Spatial Science programs. Students also need to develop and practice language, problem solving and computer skills in English so that they can build upon their existing knowledge and express themselves adequately in the mathematical context. 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 appreciate the diverse applications and power of Mathematics and Physics; and their precise language and structure of; and to develop confidence and reduce anxiety by using mathematics skills in a variety of problem solving sessions.

There are two compulsory parts of the course. Part A consists of the mastery of the content of selected topics within algebra for calculus, algebra and graphs, trigonometry, application of calculus, integral calculus, and Physics appropriate to Maths C level. Students are also expected to show competence in communicating using mathematical language in English. Part B consists of group work designed to develop the mathematical communication, problem solving and computer skills of students. This work utilises some of the content mastered in Part A of the course.
