University level mathematics differs from that taught in schools not only in the difficulty of the topics and higher abstraction, but also in the style of teaching. This module aims to ease the transition to university level mathematics by bridging the gap between mathematics taught prior to university level, and the material covered in the first year of our mathematics degree, including the programming languages which will be taught in depth in other modules. The module eases you into a university teaching and learning environment and helps revise material from A-level. You will revisit essential skills in algebra, coordinate geometry, vectors, series and sequences, as well as some topics which are covered in Further Mathematics A-level such as complex numbers, matrix algebra, differential equations, and Maclaurin series. In this module, you will go over the theory and see many solved examples, as well as practice many examples to master these essential topics. Attending the lectures of this module is highly recommended to those students who do not have an A-level in Further Mathematics or equivalent, but those who do can also utilise these sessions to review the material and gain more practise experience. This module will also provide the skills needed to communicate mathematics which is a vital skill in all modules to be taken throughout a mathematics course.

This module aims to support the transition to year 1 undergraduate mathematics with elements of revision and self-study.
