Learning outcomesOn successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate an understanding of the basic concepts of classical and analytical geometry, linear algebra and number theory;
2. Compute in classical and analytical geometry and linear algebra using pen and paper in simple situations, and computers in some more complicated ones;
3. Recognise the power of mathematical modelling and analysis;
4. Analyse and solve contemporary problems of both theoretical and practical importance.
Graduate attributes1. UC graduates are professional - use creativity, critical thinking, analysis and research skills to solve theoretical and real-world problems

Submission of assessment items
Special assessment requirements
All assessment items will receive a numerical mark. The final grade will be determined as a weighted average of the individual assessment items.
To be awarded a particular grade in Engineering Mathematics, students must meet the overall requirements, the assignment requirement and the exam requirement in the table below.
All grades are conditional upon the following minimum requirements:
- Minimum 50% on the assignment, and
- Minimum 40% on the exam paper and
- Minimum 50% overall.
The unit convener reserves the right to question students orally on any of their submitted work and modify student's grade accordingly.
The grade cut-offs will be:
|High Distinction (HD)||Final Mark >= 85|
|Distinction (DI)||Final Mark >= 75|
|Credit (CR)||Final Mark >= 65|
|Pass (P)||Final Mark >= 50|
|Fail (NX)||Final Mark < 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 both class and online 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.
Required IT skills
All students are assumed to be able to:
- Read and print documents on the unit website
- Communicate using email.
- Use their own scientific calculator.
- Produce small pieces of code.
