MATH1003 is designed to provide a thorough preparation for further study in mathematics and statistics.

It is a core unit of study providing three of the twelve credit points required by the Faculty of Science as well as a Junior level requirement in the Faculty of Engineering.

This unit of study first develops the idea of the definite integral from Riemann sums, leading to the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus. Various techniques of integration are considered, such as integration by parts.

The second part is an introduction to the use of first and second order differential equations to model a variety of scientific phenomena.

PLEASE NOTE: Due to the upcoming curriculum changes:

  • MATH1001 will be offered in the 2018 Summer School and 2018 Semester 1, after which it will no longer be offered; and

  • MATH1003 will be offered in 2018 Summer School, after which it will no longer be offered.

MATH1001 will be replaced with the unit MATH1021, which will start in 2018 Semester 1.

MATH1003 will be replaced with the unit MATH1023, which will start in 2018 Semester 2.

It is possible to take the pairs MATH1001/1023 or MATH1021/MATH1003, but it is best for students to take either the old pair (MATH1001/MATH1003) or the new pair (MATH1021/MATH1023).

Potential Summer School MATH1001 students should therefore be aware that after Summer School 2018, they will not be able to complete MATH1003.

In order to complete the MATH1001/MATH1003 pair, we advise students to either

  • take both MATH1001 and MATH1003 in 2018 Summer School; or

  • take MATH1003 in 2018 Summer School and MATH1001 in 2018 Semester 1.
