Introduction

Bridging Maths explores essential foundation skills and knowledge in mathematics. This unit is designed to help you to improve your maths skills and confidence, whilst developing good study habits in preparation for university study. You will have the opportunity to practice fundamental skills, before applying your knowledge to solve problems independently. This unit prepares you for further study in business and science related courses. It is a recognised prerequisite for BEA140 Quantitative Methods and a recommended pathway for KMA002 Maths Applied Foundation. Topics covered include: order of operations, linear, quadratic and exponential equations, graphical methods and modelling, indices and logarithms, trigonometry or sequences and series, and basic statistics. It is strongly recommended that you have some prior experience of studying basic algebra (even if it was a while ago) as basic algebra concepts are reviewed but are not taught explicitly
