|Course code MATH1120||Units 10||Level 1000||Faculty 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.
