Mathematics Methods






This page displays all the available documents for the course Mathematics Methods.


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.

Quality Assurance


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.
