All details in this unit profile for MATH11218 have been officially approved by CQUniversity and represent a learning partnership between the University and you (our student).
The information will not be changed unless absolutely necessary and any change will be clearly indicated by an approved correction
included in the profile.
In this unit, you will study fundamental mathematical concepts, processes and techniques that are necessary to support subsequent studies in applied calculus. You will investigate the properties and applications of linear, quadratic, logarithmic and exponential functions. You will use trigonometry to solve triangles and determine solutions to problems involving algebraic techniques. Complex numbers, vectors and matrix algebra will be used to develop solutions to problems. Other important elements of this unit are the communication of results, concepts and ideas using mathematics as a language. This unit will develop your software skills in WolframAlpha to visualise, analyse, validate and solve problems.

Offerings For Term 1 - 2023
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).
