Maths Bridging

Monash Maths Bridging is for domestic and onshore international students who narrowly miss the mathematics prerequisite for a Monash University undergraduate degree in:

  • Engineering
  • Science
  • Business and Economics
  • Information Technology
  • Pharmacy and Pharmaceutical Science

Monash Maths Bridging provides you with the knowledge, essential skills and methods to meet the mathematics prerequisite for your chosen Monash University course.

If you successfully pass the Monash Maths Bridging course, and you meet all other course entry requirements you will be considered for a round 2 offer.

NOTE: Once you have completed the Monash Maths Bridging course, first round offers will have been made, but you do have the opportunity to reorder your preferences between round one and two offers being released. Be aware that you can receive only one offer per offer round and this will be for your highest eligible preference. You should ensure you are happy with the ordering of course preferences in your VTAC application.

Monash Maths Bridging is only accepted by Monash University. It is not recognised by other institutions.

Course details

Entry requirements

Domestic and Onshore International students

A study score of 20-24 in VCE Mathematics Methods Units 3&4. You must also meet all other entry requirements for your specific Monash University destination degree.

Expected Knowledge

Background knowledge and skills in algebra, graph sketching, elementary functions such as polynomial and trigonometric functions, and introductory calculus are essential. Time will not be spent introducing background knowledge and skills. The course will focus on immediate application and development.

What you will study

Maths Bridging explores the properties of functions and their graphs, calculus processes of differentiation and anti-differentiation, and the application of these properties and processes.

You will study:

  • functions and their graphs and inverse functions
  • exponential, logarithmic and circular functions
  • techniques and applications of calculus.

Course Outcomes

At the end of this unit you will be able to:

  1. Recognise functions, sketch their graphs and be familiar with their properties.
  2. Solve polynomial, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric equations, including applications in word problems.
  3. Identify the properties of inverse functions and be able to solve mathematical problems using these properties.
  4. Calculate average and instantaneous rates of change, including the use of the differentiation process for the functions relevant to this unit.
  5. Apply differentiation techniques in the solution of problems.
  6. Find indefinite integrals for specified functions, evaluate definite integrals and use these techniques to solve problems.

You will receive your grades for Monash Maths Bridging after the final examination has been marked. You will receive a certificate with your grades. Successful completion of the subject with a mark of at least 50% will be required for the subject to count as an equivalent prerequisite to VCE Mathematical Methods 3&4 at Monash University.

Entry to Monash University

If you successfully pass the Monash Maths Bridging course, you will be considered to have met the mathematics prerequisite for selected undergraduate degrees at Monash University. If you meet all other course entry requirements you will be considered for a round 2 offer into your chosen course.

Should you receive a main round offer prior to completion of the Monash Maths Bridging course you are encouraged to accept that offer to ensure you do not lose your place. If you receive a round 2 offer you can choose to withdraw from your main round offer and take up the round 2 offer.
