Course Instructor

Logical thinking is a transferable skill, and it is needed in every career. Employers don’t expect every employee to come into a job with subject-matter expertise, but they do expect that people can think critically and learn quickly. Math education builds these logical thinking skills. This course will help you acquire those skills you need to pass your exam, thrive in your tertiary education, and succeed in the workplace.
