Mathematics is the study of order, relation and pattern

From its origins in counting and measuring it has evolved in highly sophisticated and elegant ways to become the language now used to describe much of the modern world. Mathematics is also concerned with collecting, analysing, modelling and interpreting data in order to investigate and understand real-world phenomena and solve problems in context. Mathematics provides a framework for thinking and a means of communication that is powerful, logical, concise and precise. It impacts upon the daily life of people everywhere and helps them to understand the world in which they live and work. Mathematics Methods Level 4 provides the study of algebra, functions, differential and integral calculus, probability and statistics. These are necessary prerequisites for the study of Mathematics Specialised Level 4 and as a foundation for tertiary studies in disciplines in which mathematics and statistics have important roles, including engineering, the sciences, commerce and economics, health and social sciences.
