Calculus Readiness Test and Preparatory Mathematics Course
Since 2016 our students in the intensive mathematics courses, such as science and engineering, have been writing a Calculus Readiness Test (CRT) during the orientation week. The statistics of the performance of students in WTW158 and WTW114 have been kept and it has become clear that this CRT is a far better predictor for success in the first semester mathematics courses than is the Grade 12 marks.
As an initiative on expanding our Early Engagement with our students we would like to bring the Online Preparatory Mathematics Course to your attention. Please see detail on the attached document.
