Students entering tertiary studies in science and other disciplines require mathematical skills in a wide range of areas, and experience in applying these skills to problem solving in a range of contexts. Assuming that students have basic competencies, this course further explores and develops skills relating to a range of mathematical concepts that are needed in tertiary programs in science. It establishes strong mathematical foundations for computation and modelling. Mathematical applications are explored within a range of contexts.
Assuming current skills at the level of Queensland Senior Secondary School Studies Mathematics B, this course strengthens and further develops algebra, functions, trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic and graphing competencies, and introduces matrices, vectors and calculus. Emphasis is placed on developing strong foundation mathematical skills in these areas for use in tertiary studies, and on exploring and applying these skills to a range of contexts.
