Mathematics Methods (MTM315114) has a complexity level of TQA 3 and a size value of 15: [contributes to the calculation of Australian Tertiary Admission Ranks (ATAR)]
The major themes of Mathematics Methods, TQA level 3, are function study, calculus and statistics. They include as necessary prerequisites studies of algebra, functions and their graphs, and probability. The areas of mathematics are developed systematically, with increasing levels of sophistication and complexity. Calculus is essential for developing an understanding of the physical world because many of the laws of science are relationships involving rates of change. Statistics is used to describe and analyse phenomena involving uncertainty and variation. For these reasons this subject provides a foundation for further studies in disciplines in which mathematics and statistics have important roles, including engineering, the sciences, economics, health and social sciences.
The accreditation period for this course is from 1 January 2014 until 31 December 2016.
The following processes will be facilitated by the TQA to ensure there is:
 a match between the standards of achievement specified in the course and the skills and knowledge demonstrated by students
 community confidence in the integrity and meaning of the qualification.
Process  the Authority gives course providers feedback about any systematic differences in the relationship of their internal and external assessments and, where appropriate, seeks further evidence through audit and requires corrective action in the future.
