Paper Description
These papers extend the one–variable calculus from MATHS101 Introduction to Calculus to the calculus of functions of more than one variable. Many of the topics covered provide a synthesis of calculus and geometry (from MATHS102). The mathematics studied is of fundamental and equal importance to engineers and nonengineers. Therefore, MATHS201 and ENGEN201 are substantially the same, and share the same classroom during the first 8 weeks. During the last 4 weeks, MATHS201 moves to different time slots and classrooms (and taught by Ernie Kalnins), and will cover more topics from vector calculus, and the Gamma and Beta functions.

Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete the course should be able to:
Assessment
The internal assessment:final examination ratio is 1:1.
The internal assessment will consist of five assignments (worth 2% each) and two tests (worth 20% each).
Assignments should be submitted via the slot under the G.3.19 Mathematics Reception counter.
Assignment due dates:
Assignment 1: Wednesday 25 July 3pm
Assignment 2: Wednesday 8 August 3pm
Assignment 3: Wednesday 5 September 3pm
Assignment 4: Wednesday 19 September 3pm
Assignment 5: Tuesday 9 October 3pm
Late assignments will not be accepted (any time after 3pm is considered late).
Tests will be held as follows:
Tuesday 4 September 6:158:00pm in PWC, ELT.G.01 and MSB.1.01
Tuesday 9 October 6:158:00pm in PWC, ELT.G.01 and MSB.1.05
An unrestricted pass will be awarded only to students who achieve both a final mark of at least 50% and an examination mark of at least 40%.
The time, date and place of the 3hour final examination will be arranged by the University.
Assessment Components
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.
