Unit description

This unit is the first of two units that provide the essential foundation in the concepts and techniques of mathematics that form the basis of science, engineering and higher mathematics and statistics. It covers multivariable calculus, linear algebra and differential equations. Students who successfully complete this unit should be able to:
