VCE Units 3 & 4 Further Mathematics OR
VCE Units 1 & 2 Mathematical Methods
Aims and objectives
The aims of this program are to provide students with a thorough grounding in VCE Units 3 & 4 Mathematical Methods, to lay a foundation for further university studies in mathematics and to help students to develop the skills required to manage their own mathematics education. This unit provides an appropriate background for further study in, for example, science, aviation, engineering, humanities, education or economics.
Unit Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:
1. Define and explain key concepts as specified in the content from the areas of study, and apply a range of related mathematical routines.
2. Apply mathematical processes in non-routine contexts, and analyse and discuss these applications of mathematics.
3. Select and appropriately use a computer algebra system and other technology to develop mathematical ideas, produce results and carry out analysis in situations requiring problem-solving, modelling or investigative techniques or approaches.
