The unit covers topics in single variable integral calculus and linear algebra. The fundamental theorem of calculus is studied as well as various techniques for evaluating integrals like the substitution rule, integration by parts, trigonometric substitution and various numerical approximations. A number of applications of integral calculus are investigated including finding the area between curves, the volume of solids and cylindrical shells, the length of a curve, the average value of a function, as well as applications in physics and engineering . Modelling real world problems with differential equations is studied along with techniques for solving first order differential equations using direction fields and Euler’s method, or using methods for separable equations. The use of differential equations to formulate exponential and logistic models of various growth and decay processes is also investigated. Matrices are revisited with particular focus on the determinant of a matrix and how it can be used to solve linear systems of equations. Finally infinite sequences and series are studied along with methods of determining if they converge or diverge. The use of power series to integrate and differentiate functions is investigated with particular emphasis on the Taylor and Maclaurin series representation of a function. Mathematical software is also used to analyse and solve most problems studied in the unit. Note: If you have completed unit MATH11164 then you cannot take this 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.
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%).
