Mathematics 2

Course code MATH1120Units 10Level 1000Faculty of Science and Information TechnologySchool of Mathematical and Physical Sciences

Covers the mathematics necessary to perform calculations in, and create models for, the real world of Science and Engineering. Specifically, it will demonstrate how to do mathematics in a three-dimensional world. The course describes the fundamental ideas of calculus of functions of one and two variables, differential equations and linear algebra. It continues from MATH1110 to complete a first year of Mathematics suitable for Science and Engineering students, and others for whom Mathematics is a tool.

Not to be counted for credit with MATH1220.
