Introduction to Mathematics
Simulate chance events using technology.
Calculate and interpret probabilities for chance
events that occur in two or three-stages.
Expand your knowledge of coordinate geometry,
represent information in networks, and interpret
network diagrams. Study and apply functions in
their graphs. Explore patterns, make conjectures
and test them. Use trigonometry for the solution
of right and acute triangles. Plan random samples,
collect and analyse data from them, and infer
results for a population. Use mental and written
methods and technologies where appropriate.

^
  Score is final year average of 10 subjects, not including English.
*
  Midyear applicants must have Chemistry and Biology to complete their degree in three years.
1
  Prerequisites must be satisfied by achieving a scaled score of 50% or higher, no more than five years before entry.
2
  Recommended subjects provide valuable background for courses but do not affect selection.
3
  Students must complete three Biology Units should they wish to enter the July intake of the relevant program at UWA.
4
  Students must complete three Chemistry units should they wish to enter the July intake of the relevant program at UWA.
5
  Students can be admitted without Chemistry and Physics, however this will prevent the taking of a second major.
6
  Entry to the Bachelor of Philosophy (Honours) is subject to a separate competitive entry process. The minimum UWAFP score for entry to the BPhil (Hons) is 83%.
  February commencements only. Students must also complete an ISAT.
