Mathematics Studies is designed for students whose main interests lie outside of the field of mathematics. A

fundamental knowledge of the basic mathematical processes from previous coursework must be

demonstrated. It is the aim of the course to encourage an appreciation of mathematics and will concentrate

on mathematics that can be applied to contexts in other areas of studies. Students will use an investigative

approach to study numbers and algebra, sets and logic, geometry and trigonometry, statistics and probability,

functions and financial mathematics. In addition, statistics and probability will be emphasized. Emphasis will

be placed on understanding all aspects of a problem (numeric, algebraic, graphic, and verbal), as well as

problem solving skills, the use of appropriate technology, applications, and real world data. Wherever

appropriate, historical background and cultural connections to the history of mathematics will be addressed.

This two-year course caters to students with a strong background in mathematics who are competent in a

range of analytical and technical skills. The two-year sequence covers pre-calculus and calculus topics. The

course is geared toward students expecting to include mathematics as a major component of their university

studies, either as a subject in its own right or within courses such as physics, engineering and technology.

Others may take this subject because they have a strong interest in mathematics and enjoy meeting its

challenges and engaging with its problems. The primary focus of the course includes developing important

mathematical concepts in a comprehensible, coherent and rigorous way. This course is a demanding one and

will require students to study a broad range of mathematical topics through varied and different approaches

and to varying degrees of depth
