MATH12222 - Advanced Mathematical Applications

General Information

Unit Synopsis

Techniques of advanced mathematics and applications are developed through a selection of various methods to solve linear and non-linear differential equations in science and engineering. You will study interpolation, curve fitting, and utilise the concepts of linear transformations and interpretation of eigenvalues to analyse a variety of scientific and engineering problems. Numerical methods for solving ordinary differential equations, the Fourier Analysis of periodic and non-periodic functions and partial differential equations with initial and boundary conditions are included. You will communicate results, concepts and ideas using mathematics as a language and be able to document the solution to problems in a way that demonstrates a clear, logical and precise approach.

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).

Assessment Overview

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.

Assessment Tasks

Assessment Task Weighting
1. Written Assessment 20%
2. Written Assessment 20%
3. Examination 60%

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).

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.

Source: Unit evaluation and in-class feedback
Feedback
Tried weekly 2-hour lecture + 2-hour tutorial in T1 of 2017. More students preferred the old 2 x 1-hour lectures and tutorials each week.
Recommendation
Will go back to the old 2 x 1-hour lectures and tutorials each week in 2018.
Action Taken
This has not been done due to timetabling issues.
Source: Student evaluation
Feedback
The lectures were a bit all over the place. They include cramming maths working out on the side, above, or on top of writing. Very confusing.
Recommendation
Add extra blank pages to the lecture slides.
Action Taken
Nil.
Source: Student evaluation
Feedback
Releasing the lecture slides without anything drawn/ written on them.
Recommendation
Upload the un-annotated Lecture notes as well as the annotated lecture notes.
Action Taken

Feedback
Tutorials were in lecture room straight after lecture. I found tutorials were unhelpful as they were straight after lecture without a break.
Recommendation
Have Tutorials in a classroom on a separate day.
Action Taken
Nil.
