Mathematics 1B XPD128

Introduction

This unit is a continuation of XPD127 with emphasis on the application of single- variable calculus and linear algebra to problems in the physical and biological sciences, economics, and engineering. The units XDD127 and XPD128 also provide an excellent introduction to the mathematical rigour required for higher level mathematics based subjects. Successful completion of XDD127 and XPD128 is the prerequisite for most second year units in Mathematics and Physics as well as all semester 1, second year units in Engineering.

Note

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.

Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.

* 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 2021 are indicative and subject to change. Finalised census dates for 2021 will be available from the 1st October 2020. Note census date cutoff is 11.59pm AEST (AEDT during October to March).
