The course introduces basic mathematics knowledge and skills that forms a foundation to higher level mathematics. The course covers topics on introduction to set theory: definition of terms and use of Venn diagrams; the Real number system and its properties, absolute value of real numbers and its properties; solving linear system in 2 and 3 unknowns using elimination, substitution and graphical methods, and Cramer’s rule; solving quadratic equations using factorization, completing the square method, quadratic formula and graphical methods, and analytical solutions of quadratic functions. It introduces sequences and series their definitions, types of sequences and series, and the arithmetic and geometric series. The course introduces basic statistics that include definition of terms, measures of central tendency and variations, and finally introduction to probability theory that involve definition of terms and solving problems involving basic probability.
