Mathematical Applications (T) is designed to provide students with quantitative techniques and analytic skills which will provide relevance and meaning to their world and the world of business. Mathematical Applications is suitable for students who intend later tertiary studies where Mathematics does not play a major role.
Mathematical Applications 1 T: An A, B or C in Level 1 Mathematics 10A, or an A, B or C in Level 2 Mathematics.
Mathematical Applications 2 T: Satisfactory Completion of MA1 (or MM1)
Mathematical Applications 3 T: Satisfactory Completion of MA2 (or MM1 & MM2)
Mathematical Applications 4 T: Satisfactory Completion of MA3
