Overview
In this unit, you will apply the essential calculus concepts, processes, and techniques to develop mathematical models for science and engineering problems. Throughout the term, you will record handwritten worked examples of all problems attempted in a workbook to create a comprehensive resource for solving mathematical problems, which you can apply in the exam and throughout your course and career. You will use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to illustrate the relationship between a function's derivative and integral. The theorem will also be applied to problems involving definite integrals. Differential calculus will be used to construct mathematical models that investigate various rate-of-change and optimisation problems. You will learn how to apply the standard rules and techniques of integration. Science and engineering disciplinary problems will be explored through the use of differential equations. Other essential elements of this unit are communicating results, concepts, and ideas using mathematics as a language. Mathematical software will also be used to visualise, analyse, validate, and solve problems studied in the unit.

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 3 - 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).
Recommended Student Time Commitment
Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

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 SUTE
Students were not happy with the amount of questions they have to solve in workbook based assessment items.
A number of questions in the workbook-based assessment item should be revisited to reduce the workload by removing similar types of questions from the workbook.
Feedback from SUTE
Students preferred solving smaller number of tutorial questions in detail rather than explaining large number of questions within one tutorial session.
Tutorial questions should be reviewed and identify the key questions to be discussed during the tutorial session in detail.
Feedback from SUTE
Students found content and real-world applications used within the unit interesting.
This content should be retained.
Feedback from SUTE
Some students found content taught in the unit not relevant to their discipline of study.
Content should be reviewed to include material that covers multiple disciplines.
Feedback from SUTE
Students expected more detailed individualised feedback for their assessments.
More detailed feedback should be given to assessments.

As a CQUniversity student you are expected to act honestly in all aspects of your academic work.
Any assessable work undertaken or submitted for review or assessment must be your own work. Assessable work is any type of work you do to meet the assessment requirements in the unit, including draft work submitted for review and feedback and final work to be assessed.
When you use the ideas, words or data of others in your assessment, you must thoroughly and clearly acknowledge the source of this information by using the correct referencing style for your unit. Using others’ work without proper acknowledgement may be considered a form of intellectual dishonesty.
Participating honestly, respectfully, responsibly, and fairly in your university study ensures the CQUniversity qualification you earn will be valued as a true indication of your individual academic achievement and will continue to receive the respect and recognition it deserves.
As a student, you are responsible for reading and following CQUniversity’s policies, including the Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure. This policy sets out CQUniversity’s expectations of you to act with integrity, examples of academic integrity breaches to avoid, the processes used to address alleged breaches of academic integrity, and potential penalties.
What is a breach of academic integrity?
A breach of academic integrity includes but is not limited to plagiarism, self-plagiarism, collusion, cheating, contract cheating, and academic misconduct. The Student Academic Integrity Policy and Procedure defines what these terms mean and gives examples.
Why is academic integrity important?
A breach of academic integrity may result in one or more penalties, including suspension or even expulsion from the University. It can also have negative implications for student visas and future enrolment at CQUniversity or elsewhere. Students who engage in contract cheating also risk being blackmailed by contract cheating services.
Where can I get assistance?
For academic advice and guidance, the Academic Learning Centre (ALC) can support you in becoming confident in completing assessments with integrity and of high standard.
