The Fundamentals of Higher Mathematics unit explains the fundamental principles that govern higher mathematics courses such as Advanced Algebra, Geometry, Pre-Calculus, Probability & Statistics, and Calculus. With this knowledge students will have a solid grasp of the parts of math that answer the "Why?" questions.
A lot of the material covered will help lay the foundation for higher mathematics courses. The concepts learned could someday be used to help solve difficult, real-world problems.
The study of mathematics is like doing mental gymnastics. It keeps your mind agile, strong, and adaptable. Have fun with it, and see if you can appreciate the beauty in it.
