Syllabus

This 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.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate an understanding of the topics covered; and

2. Apply this understanding to real problems in the areas covered.
