An introductory course in calculus and linear algebra that is designed primarily for students who have done well in NCEA Mathematics with Calculus. This course deals with basic ideas in calculus and linear algebra which have applications in many areas of science and commerce.
The work in MATH102 is based around the fundamental ideas in linear algebra and calculus which students started studying at school. It is designed for science and commerce students taking a quantitatively based degree programme and can be taken as a standalone course or as the first part of a three part core in mathematics, MATH102-MATH103-MATH201.Topics:Linear equations and matrices; Numbers and Functions; Differentiation and applications; Integration and applications.Recommended preparation:Suitable backgrounds for MATH102 include good NCEA level 3 calculus results (see entry recommendations for recent school leavers) or a pass in MATH101.
