|Level: 1||Credit Points: 3||Contribution Band: 2, 4, 4, 4|
Availability in 2012: Not offered (Also available in: 2013, 2014, 2015)
PrerequisiteAssumed knowledge: High School mathematics to the level of ACT College Mathematics General.
Learning OutcomesStudents will be expected to demonstrate an understanding of the topics covered, and to be able to apply this understanding to real problems in the areas covered.
SyllabusThis unit will introduce students to fundamental mathematical methods in fields such as calculus, matrices and geometry. Topics may include equations, graphs, exponentials and logarithms, sequences and series, geometric ideas (tessellations, fractals, symmetry), and applications such as chemical kinetics, ecology and catastrophe theory, mathematical genetics. Each topic will be motivated and illustrated by its applications to science and society.
