MATH11218 Applied Mathematics
Applied Mathematics
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.
General Information


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.


Career Level: Undergraduate

Pre-requisites or Co-requisites

Anti-requisite: MATH12223 or MATH12224.

Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability. See details in the Assessment Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).

Offerings For Term 2 - 2023


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).
