SHORT COURSE

Maths Extension 1 Bridging Course

This course covers the contents of both the Algebra and Functions Bridging Course and Introduction to Calculus Bridging Course, with more difficult examples included.

About this course

Maths Extension 1 is an intensive two-week course, revising the mathematics required to study engineering, physical sciences (physics, nanotechnology and chemistry), mathematics, computing and information technology.

The course covers the contents of both the Algebra and Functions Bridging Course and Introduction to Calculus Bridging Course, with more difficult examples included.

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. Subjects taught in bridging courses do not carry any credit towards your future 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:

  • Algebra and Revision
  • Linear, Quadratic, Logarithmic, Exponential, and trigonometric functions – equations and applications
  • Revision of Differentiation and Integration
  • Applications of Calculus

Interactive problem-solving workshops will run for 3 hours per day for 10 days.

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

Learning outcomes

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

Julia Memar
Lecturer

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.
