Foundation Mathematics (1017SCG)

Foundation Mathematics aims to provide a solid basis from which to build a wider set of mathematical skills across a broad range of disciplines. You may be looking to further studies in Education, IT, Business, Engineering, or any of the Physical or Social Sciences; all of which require a solid grounding in mathematics. The course has been constructed to cater for those who either did not study and pass Mathematical Methods (or Qld Maths B) in Year 11/12, OR have been away from study for some years and wish to refresh the mathematical skills required for further study. Successfully completing this course will satisfy all courses that have Mathematical Methods (or Qld Maths B) as a prerequisite, such as Linear Algebra and Calculus I. Foundation Mathematics covers the following topics. Working with Numbers, Algebraic methods, Solving equations, Understanding Functions, and both Differential and Integral Calculus. Mathematical thinking, as well as problem solving and reasoning, are developed throughout the course. Assumed Background: Basic mathematical skills to Year 10 level. Any Senior School Mathematics course would be an advantage but not necessary. Note that Foundation Mathematics is not permitted for students who have HA or VHA in Year 12 Mathematics B (Qld high school subject), or SA or higher in Year 12 Mathematics C (Qld High school subject), or the equivalent.
