Overall Comment:

Introductory Mathematics covering core content of Maths C syllabus. Necessary if you have not completed Maths C or equivalent and want to undertake further study of mathematics.

This course is fairly easy. Attending lectures is recommended to build an understanding of content and learn how to approach questions. The examinations were fairly straightforward.

There is a small quiz at the beginning of each tutorial so attendance is necessary. Tutorial sheets are a good study resource for the final exam.

Some contact classes involved assessable group tasks. Attendance of the non assessable contact classes was not crucial.
