Learning outcomesOn successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Understand basic concepts of analytical geometry and linear algebra and explain their intuitive meanings to their peers;
2. Carry out the basic techniques and algorithms of analytic geometry and linear algebra using pen and paper in simple situations, a computer in some more complicated ones; and
3. Apply the techniques and algorithms to solve problems and to mathematically model simple applications from engineering, science, finance and other areas.
Graduate attributes1. UC graduates are professional - use creativity, critical thinking, analysis and research skills to solve theoretical and real-world problems
3. UC graduates are lifelong learners - evaluate and adopt new technology

Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
To obtain a particular grade in this unit it is necessary that students must complete all assessment items. All assessment items will receive a numerical mark. The final grade will be determined as a weighted average of the individual assessment items. In order to pass this unit students have to obtain a mark of 50% or greater for the assessment as a whole, and 50% in the final exam.
|HD||FM >= 85|
|DI||FM >= 75|
|CR||FM >= 65|
|P||FM >= 50|
|NX||FM < 50|
Students have a responsibility to uphold University standards on ethical scholarship. Good scholarship involves building on the work of others and use of others' work must be acknowledged with proper attribution made. Cheating, plagiarism, and falsification of data are dishonest practices that contravene academic values. Refer to the University's Student Charter for more information.
To enhance understanding of academic integrity, all students are expected to complete the Academic Integrity Module (AIM) at least once during their course of study. You can access this module within UCLearn (Canvas) through the 'Academic Integrity and Avoiding Plagiarism' link in the Study Help site.
Use of Text-Matching Software
The University of Canberra uses text-matching software to help students and staff reduce plagiarism and improve understanding of academic integrity. The software matches submitted text in student assignments against material from various sources: the internet, published books and journals, and previously submitted student texts.
Your participation in class activities will enhance your understanding of the unit content and therefore the quality of your assessment responses. Lack of participation may result in your inability to satisfactorily pass assessment items. Experience has shown that students who do not attend classes, have difficulty passing the unit.
Students should also be aware that the subject will be examined on material covered in classes, it is the individual student's responsibility to ensure that they are sufficiently familiar with this material. Attendance at classes is one of the best ways of ensuring this familiarity. While some of the course materials are available online, these are intended to be broad outlines of the lectures. Do not make the mistake of assuming that the materials perfectly substitute for class attendance and participation.
Required IT skills
Students need to possess the ability to use on-line searching tools from the Internet, and a word processor to undertake various assessment tasks in the unit.
