SHORT COURSE

Introduction to Calculus Bridging Course

During this one-week Introduction to Calculus Bridging Course we introduce students to basic calculus operations.

About this course

Participants of this course will be introduced to basic calculus operations and guided step-by-step through calculus exercises.

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:

  • Introduction to basic calculus operations
  • Step-by-step guidance of solutions to exercises.

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

Presenters include mathematics lecturers from UTS Science.

Learning outcomes

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

Enrolment conditions

COVID-19 response

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.
