Algebra and Functions Bridging Course

During the one-week Algebra and Functions Bridging Course we revise basic algebra and introduce and revise basic algebraic functions.

About this course

This course will cover a range of topics, including basic algebra operations, functions (linear, quadratic, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric), graphs and equations.

Bridging courses are short intensive courses designed for high school students entering tertiary study. They are ideal for students who are not confident with their preparation for university study, or who may not meet the assumed knowledge requirements.

Bridging courses teach to an introductory level only and may assist in narrowing the gap between high school and university studies, however, do not carry any credit towards your degree.

Maths bridging courses aim to develop mathematical skills for tertiary study and to help students become familiar with the academic language of maths.

Course structure

The following content will be covered during this course:

  • Revision of basic algebra
  • Introduction to functions and graphs
  • Simple equations and applications.

Interactive problem-solving workshops will run for 3 hours per day for 5 days.

Presenters include mathematics lecturers from UTS Science who will provide step-by-step guidance on solutions to exercises.

Learning outcomes

By the end of the course, students should have gained an increased confidence in maths and be better prepared for maths subjects.

Julia Memar

Julia has been teaching first year mathematics at UTS for more than ten years, and she also runs Mathematics and Science Study centre and UTS Mathematics Bridging courses. Julia understands the hesitation and doubts students may have towards mathematics and knows how to build their “mathematics” self- confidence. Julia’s motto is “hard work is always pays off”, and she believes that anyone can do maths - if they apply themselves and work consistently.

Julia has built Foundation Mathematics subject which allows students to develop necessary mathematics skills and prepares them for further quantitative studies. Julia holds Masters Degree in Applied Mathematics and she has obtained her PhD studies in Operations Research from UTS in 2022. Julia has published several papers in journals and conference proceedings.
