Bridging Maths covers essential foundation skills and knowledge in mathematics. This subject is designed to help students improve their maths skills and gain confidence in their own abilities, whilst developing good study habits in preparation for tertiary study. Students will have the opportunity to practice fundamental skills, before applying their knowledge to problem solve independently. This subject can be used as either a core or elective unit in the University Preparation Program and prepares students for further study in Business and Science related courses; it is a recognised prerequisite for BEA140 Quantitative Methods and a recommended pathway for KMA002 Maths Applied Foundation.
Topics covered include:
- Order of operations
- Quadratic and exponential equations
- Graphical methods & modelling
- Indices & logarithms
- Sequences & series, and
- Basic statistics.
It is strongly recommended that students enrolling in this unit have some prior experience of studying basic algebra (even if it was a while ago!), as basic algebra concepts are reviewed but are not taught explicitly.
