This is a course covering the elementary algebraic and calculus methods necessary for mathematical modelling. Emphasis will be placed on developing facility, technique and use in applications. Modelling of processes and phenomena which occur in economics, engineering and the physical, environmental and life sciences will be used as a vehicle throughout. This course also provides a pathway to higher level mathematics courses.

Learning Outcomes

 

On satisfying the requirements of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Develop critical thinking and problem solving skills, in the context of algebra and calculus.
  2. Describe the algebraic and graphical properties of elementary functions (linear, polynomial, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric and their inverses) and their applications to engineering, economics and sciences.
  3. Explain the significance of the derivative and  integration and be able to apply techniques for the derivative and integration to situations in economics, engineering and sciences.
  4.  Develop an appreciation of matrix models in economics, engineering and the physical, environmental and life sciences.

Other Information

Secondary School Prerequisite: ACT Mathematical Methods or NSW HSC Mathematics or equivalent. 

Indicative Assessment

 

Assessment will be based on:

  • Tutorials/quizzes (20%; LO 1-4)
  • Mid-semester test (30%; LO 1-4)
  • Final Examination (50%; LO 1-4)

The ANU uses Turnitin to enhance student citation and referencing techniques, and to assess assignment submissions as a component of the University's approach to managing Academic Integrity. While the use of Turnitin is not mandatory, the ANU highly recommends Turnitin is used by both teaching staff and students. For additional information regarding Turnitin please visit the ANU Online website.

Workload

Three lectures per week and regular tutorials.
