Subject Overview: 
This subject extends students' knowledge of functions and calculus and introduces them to the topics of vectors and complex numbers. Students will be introduced to new functions such as the inverse trigonometric functions and learn how to extend the techniques of differentiation to these. Integration techniques will be applied to solving first order differential equations. Differential calculus: graphs of functions of one variable, trigonometric functions and their inverses, derivatives of inverse trigonometric functions, implicit differentiation, related rates. Integral calculus: integration by trigonometric and algebraic substitutions and partial fractions with application to areas and volumes. Ordinary differential equations: solution of simple first order differential equations arising from applications such as population modelling. Vectors: dot product, scalar and vector projections, plane curves specified by vector equations. Complex numbers: arithmetic of complex numbers, sketching regions in the complex plane, De Moivre's Theorem, roots of polynomials, the Fundamental Theorem of Algebra. 

Learning Outcomes: 
Students completing this subject should:

Assessment: 
Ten written assignments due at weekly intervals throughout the semester amounting to a total of up to 50 pages of written work (20%), and a 3hour written examination conducted during the examination period (80%).

Prescribed Texts:  None 
Recommended Texts:  Hass, Weir, Thomas, University Calculus Early Transcendentals 2nd edition, Pearson, 2012. 
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 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:

Notes: 
This subject is available for science credit to students enrolled in the BSc (both pre2008 and new degrees), BASc or a combined BSc course.
