This unit aims to make you familiar with concepts in calculus and linear algebra and their applications. These topics are typically covered in first year mathematics courses.
If it has been some time since you last studied mathematics, or you have never studied calculus, it is recommended that you do some prepartory work prior to the commencement of this unit.
Macquarie University Numeracy Centre offers an appropriate bridging course (Extension Stream of the Preparatory Course in Mathematics) for this purpose. The course is offered two weeks prior to the commencement of each semester: numeracy centre course details.
There are also preparatory and revision exercises in iLearn, available for enrolled students two weeks prior to the commencement of semester.
Students who prepare (and persevere) successfully complete this course even after entry into the unit with a non-calculus mathematics background.
