Course description

Have you ever wondered what is happening when your calculator displays "Maths Error"?  Or what would happen if you could square root a negative number?  Further maths is where you find out.  The course studies mathematics at a deeper level where the connections between apparently disparate topics emerge such as complex numbers and trigonometry.  Many people don't see maths as creative or elegant but how can a subject which can create the identity below through 20,000 years of collective mathematical study and advancement not be?
