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 Yuri Litvinenko), and will cover more theoretical material, and the Gamma and Beta functions.
Paper Structure
Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete the course should be able to:
Assessment
The assessment mark will consist of :
TWO Tests each worth 15% for a total of 30%
 test dates: see table below
 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. Should the reason be accepted an estimated grade for the missed work will be used. The estimated grade will be based on results in other assessments including the final examination and on the distribution of grades in the missed assessment.
A workshop grade worth 5%
 There will be 8 workshops and the best 6 marks will be counted.
 The best 6 out of 8 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 tutorial 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 8 out of 10 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 FINAL EXAM worth 50%.
 In order to pass this paper with an unrestricted grade (Grade C or better) you must get an overall total of 50% or greater, and ALSO at least 40% in the final exam. If your overall grade is greater than 50% but you get less than 40% in the final examination you will be awarded the grade of RP(restricted pass) which cannot be used as a prerequisite.
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.
