Hours & Credits
Calculus is a key mathematical tool used to identify and understand relationships between variables in disciplines such as the natural and physical sciences, engineering and economics. In this subject students will develop algebra and precalculus skills that are required to study calculus, and will be introduced to the key ideas of differential and integral calculus by means of examples focussed on problems in science and engineering. The subject is designed for students who have not studied calculus previously (but have algebra skills equivalent to year 10 level) and who wish to gain an appreciation of calculus as preparation for further studies in mathematics, or require it to support study in other disciplines such as physical science.
