Bridging course was offered to the freshmen before the commencement of their first semester so as to strengthen their mathematical and statistical skills. Below are some selected topics we may go through in the course.
Topic 1.1: Real Number System
This video teaches about the different classification of numbers, which include natural number, integers, rational numbers, irrational numbers, and real numbers.
Topic 1.2: Domain and Range
What is domain? What is the range of a function? This video demonstrate the concept of domain and range with two simple examples.
Topic 2: Exponential and Logarithmic Functions
This video graph up a classic exponential function and a related logarithmic function and see how the two are related visually. You can also explore more logarithms in part 1, part 2, and part 3. Now that we know what they are, you can take a look at here to solve exponential and logarithmic equations.
Topic 4.2: Differentiation and Derivative
This video introduces the concept behind differentiation and derivatives. More advance calculation will be introduced in other courses.
Topic 5: Basic Statistics
