This unit aims to give learners a strong foundation in mathematical skills which will allow them to successfully complete many of the other units within the qualification. Some of the topics learners will be introduced to include indices, algebraic formulas, quadratic equations, radian measure, trigonometry, areas and volumes, statistics and calculus.
- 48 hours
On completing this course successfully learners will be able to:
1. Use algebraic methods to solve engineering problems
2. Perform calculations involving trigonometry and standard formulae to determine areas and volumes
3. Perform calculations involving statistics
4. Use calculus to solve engineering problems
