These two quizzes will help you decide whether you are ready for Discovering mathematics (MU123), and you may wish to attempt both:
The quizzes cover the knowledge it is assumed you already have for successful study on MU123.
In order to do each quiz:
- set aside up to an hour;
- ensure that you have a pen and paper for your working;
- try to answer every question - you can do them in any order
- have a basic calculator to hand.
Each time you attempt a quiz, keep a note of how well you do and how long it takes you to complete. This information will be helpful if you need to talk to an educational adviser about your study plans.
If it takes you substantially longer you may have the mathematical potential but the pace of MU123 may be too demanding, so you should seek further advice.
Each quiz will also tell you how to brush up your knowledge if you’ve just forgotten about one or two topics, or if you wish to boost your confidence before you start the module.
