  • Description
  • Outcome
  • Certification
  • This free diploma course provides students with the mathematical knowledge and skills needed to study a Science, Technology or Engineering discipline at third-level. The course consists of maths tutorial videos in which qualified maths teachers resolve problems in real-time. Furthermore, a comprehensive assessment tests students on all aspects of mathematics which are related to science, technology and engineering. This course will appeal to third-level students who are lacking confidence in their mathematical knowledge and skills. This course will also appeal to students who are re-entering formal education after a significant absence. This diploma course will help to build students’ confidence in their mathematical ability and ensure that they are prepared for third-level study. The topics covered in this course are, Introduction to Mathematics, Algebra, Equations and Functions, Calculus, Probability and Statistics, Calculus, Matrices, Trigonometry and Complex Numbers.

  • After completing this course students will understand and be skilled in the following mathematics topics:
