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.

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.
