This subject develops fundamental concepts and principles in mathematical analysis. Students should gain skills in the practical techniques of differential calculus, integral calculus and infinite series, and study selected applications of these techniques in mathematical modelling.Topics covered include heuristic and rigorous discussion of limits of real-valued functions, continuity and differentiability; Mean Value Theorem and applications; Taylor polynomials; Riemann integration, techniques of integration and applications, improper integrals; sequences and infinite series; first order differential equations, second order linear differential equations with constant coefficients and selected applications.
Students completing this subject should:
and will be exposed to some fundamental results in real analysis such as the Mean Value Theorem.
|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).|
|Prescribed Texts:||Thomas' Calculus (M. Weir, J. Hass and F. Giordano), 11th edn, Pearson, 2005.|
|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.

In addition to learning specific skills that will assist students in their future careers in science, they will have the opportunity to develop generic skills that will assist them in any future career path. These include:
This subject is available for science credit to students enrolled in the BSc (both pre-2008 and new degrees), BASc or a combined BSc course.
This subject together with Accelerated Mathematics 1 is equivalent, in content, to the three subjects Calculus 2, Linear Algebra and Real Analysis with Applications.
Students who have completed 620-157 Mathematics 1 (prior to 2009) and Accelerated Mathematics 2 will need to complete additional reading on multivariable calculus to cover the content of Calculus 2, Linear Algebra and Real Analysis with Applications.
