General Information


In this unit, you will apply essential mathematical concepts, processes, and techniques to support the development of mathematical descriptions and models for problems in science and engineering domains. You will investigate and apply the properties of linear, quadratic, exponential, and logarithmic functions in appropriate settings, use trigonometric functions to solve relevant problems and describe periodic phenomena. You will also learn and apply principles of applied calculus for describing and solving engineering problems. Other important elements of this unit are the effective communication of results, concepts, and ideas using mathematics as a language in a way that demonstrates a clear, logical, and precise approach.

Offerings For Term 3 - 2022


Attendance Requirements

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).

Previous Student Feedback

Feedback, Recommendations and Responses

Every unit is reviewed for enhancement each year. At the most recent review, the following staff and student feedback items were identified and recommendations were made.

Feedback from Engineering Course Committee


Add vectors, complex numbers, solving systems of linear equations, and more calculus to MATH11160.


Will gradually add these topics in the redeveloped MATH11160 from Term 2 of 2020.

Feedback from Student feedback from the unit evaluation


Positive student feedback was received on the assessment; Moodle site layout and available resources; lecturing style and examples presented, and the level of support offered by staff.
