GROUP 5 - MATHEMATICAL STUDIES

Standard Level

This course is designed to provide a realistic mathematics course that caters for students with varied backgrounds and abilities. The students most likely to select this subject are those whose main interests lie outside the field of mathematics. Students likely to need mathematics for the pursuit of further qualifications should study one of the other mathematics subjects.

The course consists of number and algebra: sequences and series and the solution of quadratic equations; sets and logic: truth tables, sets and Venn diagrams; geometry and trigonometry: two and three dimensional applications; functions: polynomial and exponential; statistics and probability and introductory differential calculus.
