Note: information provided here is indicative only. For full and current course information view the official page on P&C.
code:  MATH1115 

name:  Advanced Mathematics and Applications 1 
unit value:  6 
description:  This course begins an indepth study of the fundamental concepts of calculus and linear algebra, with a particular emphasis on the underlying foundations of mathematics. The use and understanding of proof and abstract ideas will allow students to develop analytical skills which will form a base for further study in fundamental mathematics, as well as providing a foundation for a wide range of quantitative areas such as actuarial studies, computer science, economics, engineering, physics and statistics. Topics to be covered include: Calculus/Analysis  suprema and infima of sets of real numbers, completeness, RiemannDarboux definition of integration, introductory formal logic, axioms for the real numbers, sequences, convergence, limits, continuity, related real analysis theorems including the monotone convergence theorem for sequences of real numbers and the BolzanoWeierstrass theorem, existence of extrema, differentiation, applications of derivatives, proof of the fundamental theorem of calculus, Taylor polynomials, l'Hospital's rules, inverse functions; Linear Algebra  solving linear equations, matrix equations, linear independence, matrix transformations, matrix operations, matrix inverses, abstract vector spaces, subspaces, dimension and rank, determinants, Cramer's rule, complex numbers.
