ANUC1130 offers Diploma students similar learning outcomes to MATH1014 in a highly supportive environment with extended hours for teaching and learning.

This course continues on from ANUC1129 (Mathematics and Applications 1). It emphasizes an understanding of the fundamental results from calculus and linear algebra which can both be applied across a range of fields including the physical and biological sciences, engineering and information technologies, economics and commerce, and can also serve as a base for future mathematics courses. Many applications and connections with other fields will be discussed although not developed in detail.

Topics to be covered include:

Calculus - Integration and techniques of integration. Functions of several variables - visualisation, continuity, partial derivatives and directional derivatives.

Linear Algebra - theory and application of Euclidean vector spaces. Vector spaces: linear independence, bases and dimension; eigenvalues and eigenvectors; orthogonality and least squares.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

Upon successful completion of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

  1. Explain the fundamental concepts of calculus and linear algebra and their role in modern mathematics and applied contexts. These concepts include vector spaces, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, orthogonality and least squares in linear algebra; and integration, sequences and series, functions of several variables, and partial differential equations in calculus.
  2. Demonstrate accurate and efficient use of calculus and linear algebra techniques as they relate to the concepts listed above.
  3. Demonstrate capacity for mathematical reasoning through explaining concepts from calculus and linear algebra.
  4. Apply problem-solving using calculus and linear algebra techniques applied to diverse situations in physics, engineering and other mathematical contexts.

Indicative Assessment

Assessment will be based on:
  • Tutorials (25%) (LO1-4)
  • Mid-semester test (25%) (LO1-4)
  • Final examination (50%) (LO1-4)

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

160 hours of total student learning time made up from:
  • 75 hours of lectures and tutorial-based activities.
  • 85 hours of supported and independent student work.
