OverviewDerivatives and Integrals: Derivatives of elementary functions, chain rule, product rule, Integrals of elementary functions, Evaluation by substitution, Integration by parts, Area under the graph of a function.
Vectors: Basic properties, linear dependence, scalar and vector products, triple products, vector identities.
Matrices: Matrix representation, systems of equations, products, inverses, determinants, solution of linear systems, eigenvalues and eigenvectors, transformations.
Elementary Functions: Binomial coefficients, expansions and series, Maclaurin series, Taylor series, Exponential functions, Hyperbolic functions, Inverse functions.
Functions of a single variable: Linear and quadratic functions, polynomials, rational functions, limits, infinite series, approximation of functions.
Complex numbers: Quadratic equations, Argand diagram, modulus, Argument, complex exponential, de Moivre's theorem, roots of polynomials.
24 hours of lectures; 12 hours of workshops. Guidance on weekly assessments is given in workshops and students are expected to spend an extra 1-2 hours a week finalising their work for submission and quick feedback during the following workshop.
This is not available as a wild module.
Method of assessment
Coursework, comprising assignments and two in-course tests involving problem solving for 30%.
Final Examination of length 2 hours for 70%.
