You can contact staff by:
- Calling +64 7 838 4466 select option 1, then enter the extension.
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.
The first two-thirds of MATHS201 covers multi-variable calculus and vector calculus, extending the one-variable calculus from MATHS101.
The last third covers more theoretical material, and the Gamma and Beta functions (taught by Yuri Litvinenko).
The learning outcomes for this paper are linked to Washington Accord graduate attributes WA1-WA11. Explanation of the graduate attributes can be found at: https://www.ieagreements.org/
This is a lecture/tutorial-based paper with four contact hours per week -- 3 lectures and 1 tutorial. Lectures will be delivered live and will be recorded and posted on Moodle.
The way this paper is run may change (e.g. taught online) if Covid measures are taken.
Students who successfully complete the paper should be able to:
apply knowledge of multi-variable calculus, vector calculus and advanced calculus to solve engineering problems (WA1).
Linked to the following assessments:
The assessment mark will consist of :
TWO Tests each worth 15% for a total of 30%
- Test dates: Test 1 on Monday 2 May. Test 2 on Monday 16 May. Time: 6:15-7:15pm. Room to be announced.
- 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 assignment component of 20%
- There will be 11 tutorial based assignments of which only the best 9 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 (20 June-1 July), to be scheduled centrally by the university.
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
|Component Description||Due Date||Time||Percentage of overall mark||Submission Method||Compulsory|
|1. Assignments (best 9 of 11)||
|2. Test 1 (Monday 2 May, 6:15-7:15pm)||
2 May 2022
|3. Test 2 (Monday 16 May, 6:15-7:15pm)||
16 May 2022
