#### The Course

Mathematical Methods Units 1 and 2 provide an introductory study of simple elementary functions of a single real variable, algebra, calculus, probability and statistics and their applications in a variety of practical and theoretical contexts. They are designed as preparation for Mathematical Methods Units 3 and 4 and contain assumed knowledge and skills for these units.

#### Unit 1 Topics

Chosen from:

- Functions and graphs
- Algebra
- Calculus
- Probability and statistics

#### Unit 2 Topics

#### Learning and Assessment Activities

#### These units lead to

Units 1 and 2 Maths Methods is a pre-requisite for Maths Methods 3 and 4.

Studying Mathematical Methods can act as a pre-requisite for some university degree's. Studying this course could lead to the study of Mathematics or engineering at University, which could lead to employment in the engineering; finance and accounting; air traffic control, spying and decoding ; education industries (among many others).

#### Special considerations
