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 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.

Prerequisite: MATH11218 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 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).
