##### SYNOPSIS

This module provides an understanding of different mathematical concepts and ideas, building on the work covered in the foundation mathematics unit. It will allow candidates to develop further algebraic techniques on advanced mathematical topics, touching on areas often seen and used in university courses.

##### LEARNING OUTCOMES

Upon completion of the course, students are expected to be able to:

Understand cell Structure.

Understand different techniques to solve cubic equations including factor theorem and algebraic long division, and write expressions in terms of their partial

__fractions.__Work with complex numbers including writing in polar coordinate form, perform arithmetic calculations using complex numbers, solve higher order polynomials with complex roots and sketch regions in the complex

__plane.__Be able to perform arithmetic operations using matrices and understand basic transformations using matrices. In addition, understand which matrices represents linear transformations and calculate the inverse of a matrix.

Understand the properties of rational functions, using them to sketch the graphs of given polynomials and understand conic sections, recognizing standard equations.

Understand how to use sigma notation to calculate the sum of simple finite series, and appreciate the relationship between the roots of polynomials and their coefficients.

##### GLOBAL EXAMINATION

###### WEIGHT: 100.0%

###### DEADLINE: To be determined

All assessments for the qualification are intended to allow candidates to demonstrate they have met the relevant Learning Outcomes. Moreover, NCC Education’s assessment is appropriate to the assessment criteria as stated in this specification and is regularly reviewed to ensure it remains consistent with the specification.

An examination is a time-constrained assessment that will take place on a specified date, usually in an NCC Education Center. An assignment requires candidates to produce a written response to a set of one or more tasks, meeting a deadline imposed by the center.

The overall unit mark is computed from the weighted mean of its components. The pass mark for a unit is 40%.
