On completion of this course students should have developed the mathematical understanding and tools needed to undertake studies in a science discipline. After successfully completing this course, students will be able to demonstrate competency with basic calculation skills required for science including calculations involving percentages, proportions, ratios and fractions; recognise unit prefixes and confidently convert between units; use functions involving powers, logarithms and exponents; manipulate a wide range of algebraic equations in order to substitute values and to transform to solve for a particular variable; solve systems of linear equations; perform calculations involving area, surface area and volume on a range of two and three dimensional shapes; present data graphically and use numerical summaries; use a spreadsheet tool to graph experimental data including correct labelling and the use of error bars; apply the above skills in context to solve scientific problems.

* excluding students enrolled in a Postgraduate Clinical Psychology, Professional Pathway Psychology or Professional Pathway Social Work program. For accredited program and student contribution information please visit our CSP page.
Note: Due to the Job-ready Graduates Package new funding clusters and contribution amounts will take effect in the 2021 academic year. Grandfathering arrangements will be in place for students who would see an increase in their contribution amounts. Under these arrangements, students who commenced their course of study before 1 January 2021 facing increased student contribution amounts for a unit, will instead have their student contribution and Australian Government contribution amounts remain as they were under the previous arrangements (with existing rates being indexed by CPI each year). If continuing students are enrolled in units that will see their student contribution amount lowered, their student contributions will be the lowered amount
