ISA offers course level recommendations in an effort to facilitate the determination of course levels by credential evaluators.We advice each institution to have their own credentials evaluator make the final decision regrading course levels.

Hours & Credits
Properties of two- and three-dimensional space turn up almost everywhere in mathematics. For example, vectors
represent points in space, equations describe shapes in space and transformations move shapes around in spaces;
a fruitful idea is to classify transformations by the points and shapes that they leave fixed. Most
mathematicians like to be able to 'see' in special terms why something is true, rather than simply relying on
formulas. This model ties together the most useful notions from geometry - which give the meaning of the
formulas - with the algebra that gives the methods of calculation. It is an introductory module assuming
nothing beyond the common core of A-level Mathematics or equivalent.
Assessment: 10.0% Coursework, 90.0% Examination
