MathTrackX

University of Adelaide via edX XSeries

Overview

MathTrackX is an XSeries Program that has been designed to provide learners with a solid foundation in fundamental mathematics and how it can be applied in the real world. The 6 courses in this program will assist in developing the skills, knowledge and confidence for STEM related career development or preparation for further studies.

Guided by experts from the School of Mathematical Sciences and the Maths Learning Centre at the University of Adelaide, this self-paced program will equip learners with a comprehensive understanding of the key underpinnings of mathematics, required for further study. Learners will develop skills in communicating mathematical solutions and arguments, and build confidence in solving mathematical problems. Topics covered include methods and applications of differentiation, integration, probability and statistics.

Upon successful completion, this program will be accepted as a prerequisite in place of SACE Stage 2 Mathematical Methods at the University of Adelaide. MathTrackX is not a replacement for SACE Year 12 Stage 2 Maths Methods but could be a useful study tool towards completion of this certificate.

Recognition of this program may also be applicable for further studies in your state or country. Please contact your accrediting body for any processes that apply if you are hoping to use this program as a bridging course into further education at a University level.
