An introductory course in calculus and linear algebra that is designed primarily for students who have done well in Level 3 NCEA Mathematics, covering single variable calculus and basic ideas in linear algebra. The mathematics in this course has 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. MATH102 can be taken as a standalone course or as the first part of a core mathematics programme.Topics:Linear equations and matrices; Functions and Infinity; Differentiation and applications; Integration and applications.
This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:
