Mathematics Fundamentals A comprises the first four modules out of the total of eight modules offered between MATH1701 Mathematics Fundamentals A and MATH1702 Mathematics Fundamentals B.
The four modules which students will take in Mathematics Fundamentals A are:
Module 1. Equations of straight lines, linear inequalities, absolute values.
Module 2. Second degree polynomials and their graphs and techniques for quadratic equations and inequalities including factorisation, completing the square, and finding roots.
Module 3. Trigonometry of right angle triangles, expressing angles in radians and degrees, solutions to simple trigonometric equations.
Module 4. Functions, graphs, asymptotes, polynomial division, domains of rational functions, derivatives of polynomials.
These four modules are designed to be completed before students begin Mathematics Fundamentals B, in which students take the remaining four modules.
