Introduction

Applied Mathematics Foundation Unit covers college level mathematics with non-calculus based content. The aim of this unit is to prepare students for the subjects which require basic algebra, data handling and statistics or discrete mathematics as part of their tertiary study. Topics studied include: set theory concepts and notations, linear algebra, index and logarithm laws, sequences and series, trigonometry, probability, combinatorics and statistics.

On successful completion of this unit, students should be able to read and communicate in relevant mathematical language and notation, use numerical calculations to solve real-world problems and graphically represent and interpret experimental data.
