KMA152 & KMA154 are requisite first year units for majors in Mathematics, Physics & Engineering and are prerequisites for many second year units.
This unit is a continuation of KMA152, 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 KMA152 and KMA154 also provide an excellent introduction to the mathematical rigour required for higher level mathematics based subjects.
