This programme is intended to give the GFP students a chance to study a number of pre-calculus topics that help them in their future study at faculties. For students who study at faculties that use English as the standard study language, they should study GFP Mathematics in English as this will equip them with the Math’s terminology they need when study at these faculties. While students who will join Faculty of Law or Faculty of Education and Arts (except English program) study GFP Mathematics in Arabic.

Basic Mathematics:

SET 1 is the first part of Mathematics study in foundation level for all students who already passed Higher Secondary level. Students who successfully pass SET 1 can study the next level of Mathematics in GFP either SET 2 or SET 3, which depends on their future choice in the faculties.

The course is necessary to ensure that GFP students are equipped with the Basic Mathematics knowledge needed to continue studying Mathematics courses in SET 2 or SET 3. The course covers a number of topics that are fundamentals of Mathematics such as Numbers, Exponents, Fractions, Ratio, Algebra, Trigonometry, etc. The course is delivered in English which is the official teaching language. Students are not allowed to use scientific calculators when they study SET 1.

Applied Mathematics:

SET 2 is the second part of Mathematics study in foundation level for students who already passed SET 1 and intend to pursue Business or Humanities studies. Students who successfully pass SET 2 can study the next level of Mathematics in faculties they will join.

The course is necessary to ensure that GFP students are equipped with the Mathematics knowledge needed to continue studying Mathematics courses in faculties of Business or Humanities. The course covers a number of topics that are more advanced than SET 1 topics such as functions and their graphs, descriptive statistics, probability, simple and compound interest, logarithms, etc. The course is delivered in English which is the official teaching language. Students are allowed to use scientific calculators when they study SET 2.

Pure Mathematics:

SET 3 is the second part of Mathematics study in foundation level for students who already passed SET 1 and intend to pursue CIT or Engineering studies. Students who successfully pass SET 3 can study the next level of Mathematics in faculties they will join.

The course is essential to GFP students because the topics and the outcomes are the necessary Mathematics knowledge needed to continue studying Mathematics courses in faculties of CIT or Engineering. The course covers a number of topics that are more advanced than SET 1 topics such as functions and their graphs, Trigonometry, logarithms, descriptive statistics, etc. The course is delivered in English which is the official teaching language. Students are allowed to use scientific calculators when they study SET 3.
