|Subject Overview:||Students will strengthen and develop algebraic and conceptual skills, building a firm mathematical base for 620-154 Calculus 1. |
Fundamental concepts about number systems and set theory will be followed by introductory counting principles and techniques. These will be applied to the laws of probability, leading to the study of discrete and continuous random variables. Basic ideas about functions and their inverses will be introduced using examples such as the logarithmic, exponential and trigonometric functions. Differential and integral calculus will be studied with applications to graph sketching and optimization problems. Students will also learn integration techniques, with applications to areas between curves.
|Assessment:||Up to 25 pages of written assignments 10% (due during semester), a 45-minute written test 10% (held mid-semester), a 3-hour written examination 80% (in the examination period).|
|Breadth Options:|| |
This subject potentially can be taken as a breadth subject component for the following courses:
You should visit learn more about breadth subjects and read the breadth requirements for your degree, and should discuss your choice with your student adviser, before deciding on your subjects.
|Fees Information:||Subject EFTSL, Level, Discipline & Census Date|
|Generic Skills:||In addition to learning specific mathematical skills, students will have the opportunity to develop generic skills that will assist them them in any career path. These include: |
This subject is not available for science credit or commerce credit in any course.
This subject is equivalent for pre-requisite purposes to VCE Mathematical Methods 3/4.
