Introduction to trigonometry and algebra. Emphasis on solving problems relevant to design, physical, life and earth sciences as well as to commerce and the humanities. An introduction to the ideas, techniques and applications of statistics and probability.
This course provides a foundation of mathematics and practical techniques for using, summarizing and visualizing data from a userâ€™s point of view. The emphasis is on sensible and correct use or interpretation of mathematical and data analysis tools in real-life problems. The course assumes elementary levels of competence in mathematics. Microsoft Excelâ„¢ will be used as a tool within the course.The emphasis of this course is on applying the methods covered in the course to problems, selecting sensible techniques, following the methodology and interpreting the results. Practical Excel skills are taught as a tool for performing calculations and for analysing and visualizing data. Applications to commerce, the social sciences, humanities, science and engineering are considered.
This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:
