Learning outcomes1. 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
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
2. UC graduates are global citizens - make creative use of technology in their learning and professional lives
3. UC graduates are lifelong learners - adapt to complexity, ambiguity and change by being flexible and keen to engage with new ideas
The University recognises that individuals entering its programs bring with them a diversity of personal and professional attributes that should be further developed by their experience as students and graduates of the University.

Submission of assessment items
Extensions & Late submissions
Late submission of assignments
Late submission of assignments without an approved extension will result in the assignment not being marked and zero being recorded for that particular assignment.
In extenuating circumstances a late submission may be considered upon the production of supporting documentation and at the discretion of the unit convener.
Extensions: Extensions must be applied for before the due date.
Students can apply for an extension to the due date for submission of an assessment item on the grounds of illness or other unavoidable and verifiable personal circumstances. Documentary evidence will be expected in order that an extension be granted.
It should be noted that such documentation will be considered but will not guarantee that the application will be successful. The Unit Convenor will decide whether to grant an extension and the length of the extension.
Responsibility for understanding
If there is any doubt with regard to the requirements of any particular assignments or assessment procedure, the onus for clarifying the issue rests with the student who should contact the unit convenor or tutor. Further, it is the responsibility of students to ensure that they are correctly enrolled in the unit and that the tutor and Student Administration have their correct contact details.
In order to be eligible for a deferred exam, students must contact the Exams Office within 3 days of the scheduled exam time to request a deferred exam.
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.
