Subject Description
The subject covers the main topics which are taught in mathematics years 11 and 12 at school. The chosen topics are specifically those taken as assumed knowledge in the subjects MATH141 and MATH187. The general topic areas are: algebra, trigonometry, coordinate geometry, functions and calculus. The focus is on developing mathematical skills and improving competence and confidence in the language and terms of mathematics. Where possible the work will be related to potential engineering applications.

Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Apply mathematical skills to higher level mathematics subjects;
2. Demonstrate an understanding of important mathematical concepts such as calculus;
3. Demonstrate knowledge of and competently use formulae from trigonometry and calculus;
4. Demonstrate an understanding of and use the skills and language of algebra geometry and trigonometry;
5. Solve elementary applied mathematical and engineering problems.

Extra Information
Generic Extra Information:
This subject will allow students to reach the required standard to be able to attempt the normal mathematics done by students commencing an Engineering degree. It is suitable for students who: have not performed well at HSC Mathematics, or have only completed General Mathematics, or are high performing students who did not complete mathematics at year 12 level. It is the key subject in the course 898 Undergraduate Enabling which is an enabling course for Faculty of Engineering students.
