Advanced Mathematics 2
Gain a better understanding of differential equations, kinematics, vector calculus, and dynamics, with this math course.
Description
This course begins by teaching you how to successfully complete mathematics exams. You will then study differential equations which are mathematical equations that relate a function to its derivatives. You will also study the use of the second derivative, kinematics including how to find displacement from velocity and acceleration, and motion under a constant force and motion under a variable force. This course will then present you with advanced mathematics problems covering chemical concentrations and chemical reactions.
You will then study the resolution of forces which include static friction and angle of friction. You will look into vectors and learn how to find a cartesian equation and use a graphic calculator with parametric equations. You will also learn how to calculate the closest distance to a path. This course will then cover the differentiation and antidifferentiation of vectors including the notations used in vector calculus.
In this modern world where advancedtechnology thrives, deeper knowledge in higherlevel maths is crucial to success in many fields. This Advanced Mathematics course will ensure that your math skills are a cut above your peers, that your next maths exam is a little bit easier, and that this fascinating and important field of study becomes a lot more open to you. Start your next learning journey, today.
