Code Course Role Duration
EPMATH302 Intensive Intermediate Mathematics
English Language and Foundation Studies Centre, University of Newcastle
This course is an intermediate level mathematics course which will cover the introductory concepts as in Introductory Mathematics as well as further skills in algebra and further practice in problem-solving. The course content includes skills in numeracy, algebra, linear function, graphing, probability and statistics and also covers non-linear functions, exponential and logarithmic theory and further probability and statistics including binomial theorem and correlation and regression. The course aims to provide a sound foundation in a wide range of mathematical concepts and skills and in their application to problem solving.
Lecturer 1/07/2013 - 31/12/2019
EPMATH135 Intermediate Mathematics
English Language and Foundation Studies Centre, University of Newcastle
This course is an intermediate level mathematics course which covers the introductory concepts as in, EPMATH134 Introductory Mathematics: Basics, as well as further skills in algebra and functions and further practice in problem solving. The course content includes skills in numeracy, algebra, linear and non-linear functions, graphing, exponential and logarithmic theory. The course aims to provide a sound foundation in a wide range of basic mathematical skills and in their application to problem solving.
Lecturer 1/02/2006 - 30/06/2019
EPMATH127 Mathematical Studies
English Language and Foundation Studies Centre, University of Newcastle
 EPMATH127 continues the development of functions, graphs and statistics as well as introducing basic trigonometry and probability. It is designed to prepare students for some undergraduate courses including Primary Education, Nursing, Business and Construction Management. The depth of treatment is similar to the Higher School Certificate General Mathematics course.
Lecturer 1/07/2005 - 31/12/2010
EPMATH235 Statistics
English Language and Foundation Studies Centre, University of Newcastle
The course includes foundation concepts in probability, statistics, normal distribution, binomial theorem, correlation and regression and their application to problem solving.
Lecturer 1/07/2006 - 31/12/2019
EPMATH126 Mathematical Studies
English Language and Foundation Studies Centre, University of Newcastle
Mathematical Studies prepares students for undergraduate courses requiring knowledge and understanding of the basic skills of mathematics and Statistics. The course covers topics of arithmetic and calculation, basic algebra, equations and descriptive statistics.
Lecturer 1/02/2005 - 30/06/2010
EPMATH309 Extension Mathematics (Intensive)
English Language and Foundation Studies Centre, University of Newcastle

This course prepares students for the commencement of undergraduate study in those courses that require a sound knowledge of mathematical principles. The depth and content is similar to HSC 2 Unit Mathematics. It covers number systems, basic algebra, simultaneous and quadratic equations, functions and graphs, sequences and series, trigonometry and differential and integral calculus with applications.

Lecturer 1/07/2007 - 31/12/2012
EPMATH303 Introductory Mathematics (Intensive)
English Language and Foundation Studies Centre, University of Newcastle
This course is an introductory mathematics course which will cover basic skills in numeracy, algebra, linear function, graphing, probability and statistics. The course aims to provide a sound foundation in basic mathematical skills and an introduction to their application to problem solving.
