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 have until the sixth Friday from Monday 26 February to determine if they wish to change down to a less difficult Mathematics paper without any fees loss.
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.
Classify and solve Elementary Differential equations.
Gain an appreciation of the technical difficulties involved in defining derivatives and integrals.
Understand the completeness property of the real numbers and its consequences.
Understand limits of sequences, series and functions and be able to apply those definitions.
Be able to apply tests for convergence.Linked to the following assessments:
The internal assessment mark will consist of TWO Tests (each worth 20%) plus the total tutorial component (10%). Tests will be in the evening in lecture theatres to be advised later.
Please take your ID Card to both tests – 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.
An UNRESTRICTED pass (i.e. C- or better) will only be awarded to students who achieve both a final overall mark of at least 50% and an Examination mark of at least 40%. A final overall grade of RP (Restricted pass) will NOT be accepted as a prerequisite for entry into any higher level Maths paper.
Calculators will NOT be permitted in Tests or the Final Examination.COPYING of other students’ Assignments/Tests will receive zero (this will include all students involved) and be reported to the Disciplinary Committee.
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%
At least one Assessment Component needs to be entered
