Mathematics and Numeracy
Mathematics is important in everyday life, allowing us to make sense of the world around us and to manage our lives. Using mathematics enables us to model real-life situations and make connections and informed predictions. It equips us with the skills we need to interpret and analyse information, simplify and solve problems, assess risk and make informed decisions.
You will also get to develop skills in the areas of algebra, geometry and trigonometry as well as learn elementary calculus.
In this course you will build on your previous mathematical experience. You will learn to interpret information and solve problems relevant to real life and mathematical situations. You will use, explore and manage mathematical language and ideas, which are all important in scientific and research work.
The course has three compulsory units, plus an added value unit that assesses your practical skills.
