This unit aims to develop the fundamental functions of applied mathematics, and to introduce calculus to students who have not previously studied it in secondary school. It is designed to prepare students for tertiary level mathematics.
Topics to be addressed in this unit include: polynomials, exponentials, logarithms and trigonometric functions. Particular reference is made to the basic rules of algebra governing operations, functions and the solution of equations. The rules for differentiating and integrating elementary polynomial, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions are introduced. Applications studied include graph sketching, maximisation and minimisation problems, areas and kinematics.
Examination 60%, three assignments (10%, 15%, 15%) 40%. To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve a mark of at least 50% in the examination.
