TRANSMATH is a Self-paced Computer-based learning system to bridge the transition from A level (or equivalent) mathematics to 1st year undergraduate level mathematics. It is designed to help students who need to review some or all of the A level mathematical topics. Many of the examples and virtually all the exercises are generated at runtime. In addition, there are many animated examples.

The current program covers

  • Elementary Algebra
  • Complex Numbers
  • Trigonometry
  • Introduction to Functions
  • Sequences and Series
  • Calculus - Differentiation and Integration
  • Ordinary Differential Equations - 1st Order Separable and Linear ODEs, Applications, Initial Value Problems and Constant Coefficient 2nd Order ODEs.
  • Numerical Methods - Trapezoidal Rule, Simpson's Rule, Euler's Method
  • Matrices - Transformations and Advanced Matrices
  • Vectors - Introduction.
Can be interfaced with Mathematica (2.2.2) for error checking and feedback in exercises.
