Syllabus

This unit teaches the fundamental methods of differentiation, and introduces matrix and vector algebra. This is the basis for most scientific applications of mathematics and is a core part of the senior secondary curriculum for mathematics educators. Topics include algebra, functions, limits, continuity, differentiation, vectors, matrices, and applications. The unit provides students with a thorough understanding of the basic techniques, together with an introduction to applications, focussing particularly on applications in chemistry, biology, and health.

Learning Outcomes

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

1. Demonstrate an understanding of the basic concepts;

2. Calculate with functions, matrices and vectors;

3. Recognise situations where functional methods can be applied to chemistry, biology, and health;

4. Apply the methods in straightforward real-life examples; and

5. Interpret and asses the real-life implications of these applications.
