This course is for students with a good background in mathematics and who are competent in a range of analytical and technical skills. Most students will be expecting to include mathematics as a major component of their university studies, either as a subject in its own right or within courses such as physics, engineering and technology. Others may take this subject because they have a strong interest in mathematics and enjoy meeting its challenges and engaging with its problems. Students will study algebra, functions, trigonometry, matrices, vectors, statistics and probability, calculus, and series and differential equations.
