Need to catch up on Mathematical Methods?*

If you have not successfully completed SACE Stage 2 Mathematical Methods* or equivalent but wish to study a degree that requires it as a prerequisite, the Maths Learning Centre offers a self-paced bridging courses that could help you.

MathsTrack covers the content in the SACE Stage 2 subject Mathematical Methods*.

This course is self-paced, which means you access the resources yourself when you are ready - so you can start at any time and take as long as you need.
