MATH120 Introductory Mathematical Methods in Science and EconomicsUpdated: 07 July 2015
|Supervised Exam||There is a UNE Supervised Examination held at the end of the teaching period in which you are enrolled.|
|Restrictions||MATH101 or MATH102 or MATH110 or MATH170|
Students contemplating enrolment in MATH120 who are not familiar with the content of advanced (or 2 unit) mathematics in NSW or its equivalent should contact staff in the School of Science and Technology at firstname.lastname@example.org
This unit forms a cornerstone for students not majoring in Mathematics or Statistics and is designed to provide the required mathematical background for study in life and social sciences, as well as economics. The unit provides an introduction to mathematical methods with calculus. Students enrolling in this unit are normally expected to be familiar with the content of advanced (or 2 unit) mathematics in NSW or its equivalent. Topics covered include: elementary algebra of matrices and applications, elementary theory of functions, logarithms and exponentials with applications to science and economics, basis linear programming, introduction to differential and integral calculus and optimisation techniques for functions of one or more variables and data analysis. Emphasis is placed on mathematics as a tool in quantitative modelling, as illustrated by specific applications.
Where calculators are permitted in examinations, it must be selected from an approved list, which can be accessed from the Further Information link below.
Note: Recommended material is held in the University Library - purchase is optional
