Why study Mathematics?

Mathematics is important in everyday life, allowing us to make sense of the world around us and to manage our lives. Using mathematics enables us to model real-life situations and make connections and informed predictions. It equips us with the skills we need to interpret and analyse information, simplify and solve problems, assess risk and make informed decisions.

You will also get to develop skills in the areas of algebra, geometry and trigonometry as well as learn elementary calculus.

The skills you learn in this course are useful in many careers involving engineering, medicine, technology, business and the physical sciences.
