Learning Outcomes
The successful completion of this unit students will be able to:- understand basic concepts of calculus and explain their intuitive meanings to one's peers;
- carry out the basic techniques and algorithms of calculus using pen and paper in simple situations, and a computer in some more complicated ones; and apply the techniques and algorithms to solving problems and to mathematically model simple applications from engineering, science, finance and other areas.
Prerequisite
Assumed knowledge:Advanced Mathematics Extended (T) major, English (T) major and Physics (T) major, and for NSW, 2u English, 3u Mathematics and 2u Physics.Syllabus
This unit aims to provide students with mathematical knowledge and skills needed to support their concurrent and subsequent engineering studies. This is a level 1 unit surveying some fundamental ideas and techniques currently in use in mathematics-based studies. Some previous knowledge of calculus, algebra and trigonometry is assumed. The subject develops the calculus required for engineering units and covers such topics as single and multi-variable functions, differentiation and integration of single and multi-variable functions, infinite sequences and series and application of the concepts discussed. The unit introduces the use of a computer algebra system.Class Contact
