Mathematics is the study of order, relation and pattern. From its origins in counting and measuring it has evolved in highly sophisticated and elegant ways to become the language now used to describe much of the modern world. Mathematics is also concerned with collecting, analysing, modelling and interpreting data in order to investigate and understand real-world phenomena and solve problems in context. Mathematics provides a framework for thinking and a means of communication that is powerful, logical, concise and precise. It impacts upon the daily life of people everywhere and helps them to understand the world in which they live and work.

Mathematics Methods - Foundation Level 3 provides for the study of algebra, functions and their graphs, calculus, probability and statistics. These are necessary prerequisites for the study of Mathematics Methods Level 4 in which the major themes are calculus and statistics. For these reasons this subject provides a foundation for study of Mathematics Methods Level 4 and disciplines in which mathematics has an important role, including engineering, the sciences, commerce, economics, health and social sciences.
