SIT291 - Mathematical Methods for Information Modelling
|Year||2016 unit information|
|Enrolment modes:||Trimester 1: Burwood (Melbourne), Cloud (online)|
Campus: 2 x 1 hour class per week, 1 x 2 hour practical per week.
Cloud (online): Learning experiences are via CloudDeakin. Students will have the opportunity to participate in online consultation sessions.
SIT291 focuses on the concepts of differentiation and integration for the multi variable functions. Students will learn various techniques for solving constrained and unconstrained multivariate optimization problems as well as second order ordinary differential equations. Students will explore the applications of these mathematical techniques to the modelling of motion in space, optimization in business and economics, various forces in physics, periodic processes in mechanics, electric circuits and biology.
3 x problem solving tasks (10%, 15%, 15%) 40%, examination 60%. To be eligible to pass this unit, students must obtain at least 40% in the total mark allocated for the examination.
