  • 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.

Students who successfully complete the paper should be able to:

  • First 8 weeks:

    1. Compute the tangent line, arc length and work integrals over a parametrized curve.

    2. Calculate the gradient vector of a multivariable function, and apply the chain rule.

    3. Calculate the Taylor expansion of a multivariable function.

    4. Solve unconstrained and equality constrained optimization problems in up to three variables.

    5. Compute multivariable integrals (in Cartesian and polar coordinates).

    6. Use integration to compute volumes and moments of solid bodies.

    Linked to the following assessments:
  • Last 4 weeks:

Assessment

Edit Assessments Content

The assessment mark will consist of :

TWO Tests each worth 15% for a total of 30%

  • Test dates: Test 1 on Wednesday 7 April. Test 2 on Monday 17 May. Time: 6:15-7:15pm. Rooms: L.G.01, L.G.02, L.G.03.
  • If a test is missed due to illness or other good reason, the lecturer must be notified as soon as practicable. Appropriate documentation (for example a medical certificate issued by a doctor) must be supplied.

A workshop grade worth 5%

  • There will be 10 workshops and the best 8 marks will be counted.
  • The best (n-2) policy is intended to allow students to miss one or two workshops due to illness or other good reason without requiring us to process medical certificates. Where serious illness may cause a more prolonged absence, please consult the lecturer.

A assignment component of 15%

  • There will be 10 tutorial based assignments of which only the best 8 marks will be counted. Assignments should be your own work and copying may lead to referral to the university disciplinary committee.
  • The best (n-2) policy is intended to allow students to miss one or two assignments due to illness or other good reason without requiring us to process medical certificates. Where serious illness may cause a more prolonged absence, please consult the lecturer.

The external exam worth 50%

  • The "D" rule: The requirements for an unrestricted pass (C-­ or better) are a minimum overall mark of 50% for the whole paper and a minimum mark of 40% for the exam.
  • Exam will be held during one of the two exam weeks (14-25 June), to be scheduled centrally by the university.
