In this unit, you will apply the essential calculus concepts, processes and techniques to develop mathematical models for science and engineering problems. You will use of the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to illustrate the relationship between the derivative and the integral of a function. The theorem will also be applied to problems involving definite integrals. Differential calculus will be used to construct mathematical models which investigate a variety of 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 investigated through use of differential equations. Other important elements of this unit are the communication of 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.
