Consolidates and expands a student's knowledge of the calculus of a single variable. Topics include functions and limits, techniques of differentiation, methods of integration and infinite series. Applications to a wide range of fields will be considered.
Functions and limits (Topic 1) - Exponential and logarithmic functions. Inequalities. Functions. Limits and their evaluation. Continuity
Differentiation (Topics 2 to 5) - The first derivative and rates of change. Formal definition of the derivative. Rules of differentiation. Second and higher order derivatives. Implicit differentiation. L'Hopital's rule. Mean Value theorem. Rolle's Theorem - Applications of differentiation
Integration (Topics 6 to 8) - Antidifferentiation and indefinite integrals. The definite integral. Fundamental Theorem of Integral Calculus. Rules and methods of integration. Numerical methods for evaluating definite integrals. Improper integrals - Applications of definite integrals
Sequences and series (Topics 9 and 10) - Sequences. Series. Convergence of series. Tests of convergence. Power series. Taylor and Maclaurin series
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
