Paper Structure

Edit Paper Structure Content

Approximately half of the course comprises the calculus topics of differentiation, integration, and differential equations. Other topics to be studied are: functions, co-ordinate geometry, and trigonometry.

Calculus is part of a larger community called STEM which stands for ‘Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics.’ All students enrolled for the calculus paper automatically belong to the Pathways STEM Academy community and can expect to be involved in meetings, presentations, study groups and other mathematics-related activities or tasks.
