Developing a Profound Understanding of Fundamental Mathematics Depth of Understanding Range of Skills Extent of Knowledge Engaging in mathematics Data Handling Algebra Calculus Geometry Probability & Statistics Number Mechanics & Dynamics Modelling Complex Numbers What is expected of me? • The TDA provide all participants (EEC, MEC and ERIC) with a training bursary to facilitate their studying on the Enhancement course. • You must attend all taught sessions and participate fully in the learning and assessment process. • You are required to adhere to assessment deadlines, to know where to access all relevant material, to respect University College property/staff/students, keep appointments and maintain your audit.
