Early bird discount ends Monday September 17 – book five or more seminars to save $5 per session

Mathematical Methods

We do more than revise key theory and solve past exam questions.

Each session also includes:

  • finer points of exam preparation
  • how to decode unusual exam questions
  • how to answer questions to the marker’s requirements for maximum marks.

To revise the whole Mathematical Methods course, you should attend all the seminars listed below. However, this is not compulsory and you may choose any combination of sessions.

Please bring a calculator to each session.
