SACE Stage 2 Mathematical Methods – All TopicsUS$8.00 / month
Mathematical Methods develop an increasingly complex and sophisticated understanding of calculus and statistics. By using functions and their derivatives and integrals and by mathematically modelling physical processes, students develop a deep understanding of the physical world through a sound knowledge of relationships involving rates of change. Students use statistics to describe and analyse phenomena that involve uncertainty and variation.
Mathematical Methods provide the foundation for further study in mathematics, economics, computer sciences, and the sciences. It prepares students for courses and careers that may involve statistics, such as health or social sciences. When studied together with Specialist Mathematics, this subject can be a pathway to engineering, physical science, and laser physics.
