Mathematical Methods develops an increasingly complex and sophisticated understanding of calculus and statistics. By using functions and their derivatives and integrals, and by mathematically modelling physical processes, students develop a deep understanding of the physical world through a sound knowledge of relationships involving rates of change.
Stage 2 Mathematical Methods consists of the following topics:
- Further differentiation and applications
- Discrete random variables
- Integral calculus
- Logarithmic functions
- Continuous random variables and the normal distribution
- Sampling and confidence intervals
