  • Overview

    Description
    Covers the parts of calculus and algebra which have proved fundamental to all of mathematics and its applications. It is the first of a pair of courses, MATH1110 and MATH1120, designed to cover a range of mathematical topics of importance to students in the Sciences, Engineering or Commerce.

    In algebra, students learn concepts and symbolic manipulation when calculating with large numbers of variables. In calculus, they learn concepts used when working with continuously changing variables. Both ways of thinking are essential in the mathematics met by students in the Sciences, Engineering and Commerce.

     

    Learning outcomes
    On successful completion of the course students will be able to:

    1. Demonstrate competence to study further university level mathematics as required in their program of study.

    2. Demonstrate mathematical knowledge and skills in the areas of calculus, functions, vectors and complex numbers.

    3. Demonstrate improved analytical ability, in particular their skills at problem-solving.
