Mathematics with Calculus Level 3

L3MAC
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr K. Roberts

Without a doubt, calculus is so awesome and its techniques so flexible and diverse that it trains you to look at problems, no matter how complex, as solvable until proven otherwise. Furthermore, the skill of twisting a problem over in your head, selecting an approach, and then working through a solution develops in you the ability to think clearly. As a result, the study of calculus is considered by many to be very important for improving your cognitive skills and is also a requirement for admission to most top universities.
The aim for this course is to prepare students for study of mathematics beyond secondary level. Calculus has many applications and is a requirement for many tertiary courses.
