In this unit, you will study fundamental mathematical concepts, processes, and techniques necessary to support subsequent studies in applied calculus. 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 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 communicating 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.

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).

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).
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.
This is a pass/fail (non-graded) unit. To pass the unit, you must pass all of the individual assessment tasks shown in the table above.
