This course aims to give students the necessary mathematical skills and background to continue with Mathematics at Level 2, as well as to further develop logical thinking and problem solving techniques.

This course is designed around the Level 5/6 of the Mathematics Curriculum. Students will be studying towards mathematical knowledge and uses for techniques learned. The course has a lot of more practical subject matter than the Abstract Course.

There is an expectation that all students will have access to their own device and calculator. We recommend the Graphics Calculator Casio FX9860.
