This first year mathematics unit provides a broad introduction to the fundamental mathematical operations and methods (differentiation, integration and partial differentiation) and mathematical objects (vectors) needed in engineering and science. We initiate themes of mathematical modelling which are most important in connection with practical problems. This unit lays a solid foundation for more advanced mathematics undertaken in semester two and higher years.

Units are offered as On-campus where the majority of teaching will occur at the campus identified. Units offered Off-campus generally have no requirement for attendance at a physical university campus unless the unit has practical or fieldwork components*: the campus indicated for an Off-Campus unit is the one at which teaching is administered from.
*Please read the Unit Introduction in the Course and Unit Handbook for attendance requirements for units offered in Off-campus mode.
* The Final WW Date is the final date from which you can withdraw from the unit without academic penalty, however you will still incur a financial liability (see withdrawal dates explained for more information).
Unit census dates currently displaying for 2017 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2017 will be available from the 1st October 2016.

Newnham Campus: 3 hours Lectures weekly, 1 hour Tutorial weekly
Cradle Coast Campus: Lectures will be delivered offline, with weekly on-campus tutorials.
Cradle Coast Campus Students: We strongly recommend to all students (in particular Cradle Coast campus students) that to get the best outcome of the unit, you should physically attend the lectures in the Newnham (Launceston) campus. However, all lectures are recorded and will be made available on MyLO (subject to availability). For missed recordings due to external factors beyond the lecturer's control, all reasonable efforts will be made to rectify the situation arising from this.
Examination 60%, Assessments 40%
