Extensions starting with 4, 5, 9 or 3 can also be direct dialled:
- For extensions starting with 4: dial +64 7 838 extension.
- For extensions starting with 5: dial +64 7 858 extension.
- For extensions starting with 9: dial +64 7 837 extension.
- For extensions starting with 3: dial +64 7 2620 + the last 3 digits of the extension e.g. 3123 = +64 7 262 0123.
To give students in mathematics, or in subjects that use mathematical methods, a comprehensive foundation in differential and integral calculus, and examples of its applications.
Students who successfully complete the course should be able to:
Understand the definition of derivative.
Differentiate elementary functions.
Apply the derivative to maximum and minimum of functions.
Calculate the indefinite and definite integral of a function.
Methods of substitution and integration by parts and applications.
The logarithm and exponential function.
Elementary Differential equations.Linked to the following assessments:
There will be Five assignments (Five tutorials-worth 4% each)-a total of 20% of the overall mark.
|Assignment 1||Wednesday 9 January 10:00-10:50 am ELT.G.01 (4%)|
|Assignment 2||Wednesday 16 January 10:00-10:50 am ELT.G.01 (4%)|
|Assignment 3||Thursday 24 January 10:00-10:50 am ELT.G.01 (4%)|
|Assignment 4||Friday 1 Feberuary 10:00-10:50 am ELT.G.01 (4%)|
|Assignment 5||Tuesday 12 February 10:00-10:50 am ELT.G.01 (4%)|
Assignments will be handed out during each tutorial session-these must be YOUR OWN WORK (no interaction-no questions), to be completed during and submitted at the END of each tutorial session.
There will be ONE ninety-minute TEST, worth a total of 30% of the overall mark.
|Test 1||Monday 4 February 9:00-10:30 am ELT.G.01 (30%)|
COPYING of test/assignments will receive ZERO (which includes all students involved) and will be reported to the Disciplinary Committee.
There will also be an official THREE-hour Final Examination timetabled sometime between Wednesday13 February-Friday15 February which is arranged by the Assesment and Graduation office and confirmed at a later date.
A FINAL overall unrestricted pass (ie.C- or better) in this paper will only be awarded to students who achieve BOTH an EXAM mark of at least 40%
AND a FINAL OVERALL mark of at least 50%.
A restricted pass (RP) will NOT be accepted as a pre-requisite for entry into any further Mathematics papers.
CALCULATORS will NOT be permitted in Test or the Final Examination.
Please take your ID Card to test – if you do not, your test script and mark will be with-held until you present this to the Maths & Stats Reception (G.3.19) the following day.
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. There is no final exam. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50 or 0:0, whichever is more favourable for the student. The final exam makes up either 50% or 0% of the overall mark.
Error: Assessment components must add up to 100%
