Quantitative methods are used in many areas of science and business. The course MATH1001 introduces and develops those areas of arithmetic, algebra and geometry necessary for an understanding and use of basic quantitative methods.
This course is suitable for those students who have not studied, or who have not succeeded in, mathematics courses at the HSC level.
Students cannot count MATH1001 for credit if they have previously passed MATH1002, MATH1100, MATH1110 or MATH1210.
A student successfully completing this course will have
1. An understanding of the nature of the real number system, through well-founded skills
2. Skills in algebra and an understanding of how these are based on properties of number systems
3. An appreciation of the applicability of mathematical theory and skills
4. Knowledge of the role coordinate geometry plays in linking algebra and geometry
1. Essential Arithmetic
2. Basic Algebra
3. Co-ordinate Geometry
