Mathematics 1A - MATH1061

Year - 2024

Mathematics is both a powerful tool with many diverse applications and a subject that is beautiful in itself. Mathematics 1A introduces you to university mathematics by building on what you have already learnt and open doors to new ideas and to give new perspectives on what you already know. The unit contains material on Calculus, Linear Algebra and Complex Numbers, all of which have profound applications in science, engineering, statistics, and economics. This unit investigates differential and integral calculus of one variable and the diverse applications of this theory. Linear algebra begins with vectors and vector algebra. From there we consider matrices, determinants eigenvalues and eigenvectors as tools to solve systems of linear equations and other applications. At the end of this unit you will be equipped with mathematical knowledge that you will use in many different context and to continue mathematical studies at University. Students are very strongly recommended to complete MATH1061 Mathematics 1A before starting MATH1062 Mathematics 1B.
