This course aims to extend students confidence and understanding of Algebra, Trigonometry and Calculus, using the mathematical skills learnt to solve complex problems in a variety of applied contexts relevant to their destination pathways.
As such, the course may include, but is not limited to, Algebra, Trigonometry, and Calculus, but especially the following topics
Algebra 1. Using indices and logarithms and applying these to solving equations and contextual problems
Trigonometry 1. Understanding of trigonometric ratios and their graphs, and applying these to solve trigonometric equations 2. Exploring angle measures, including radians, and using them to solve contextual problems;
3. Manipulating simple trigonometric identities 4. Exploring graphical representations of a variety of functions connecting the graphs and the structure of the function
Calculus 1. Developing concepts of limits, derivatives, anti-derivatives 2. Applying calculus techniques to practical situations, eg, rates of change, graphical features, areas under a curve and kinematics
