This course is intended for study with or immediately after Using mathematics (MST121). It builds on the concepts and techniques in Using mathematics and uses the same mathematical software. It also looks at questions underlying some of those techniques, such as why particular patterns occur in mathematical solutions and how you can be confident that a result is true. It introduces the role of reasoning in mathematics and offers opportunities to investigate mathematical problems. This course and Using mathematics will together give you a good foundation for higher-level mathematics and physics courses.
