French

PRESENTATION:
This Mathematics MOOC is designed to support students in the transition from high school to further education.

Comprising 5 modules, this preparatory mathematics course allows you to consolidate your skills and gets you ready for entry into higher education.
This MOOC also provides an opportunity to assess the knowledge you have gained upon completion of your high school diploma, and review the essential mathematical concepts required for successful integration into university.

Finally, you will practice problem solving, a very important aspect of higher education.

Different evaluation methods will be used, including multiple-choice quizzes, numerous application exercises to train you, and problems to solve, which will be evaluated by other participants.

BY THE END OF THE MOOC, YOU WILL BE ABLE TO:

use calculation techniques automatically
master algebraic concepts: equations and complex numbers (high school final year)
master analytical concepts: functions, sequences and integrals (high school final year)
understand and apply problem solving methods
