This subject develops the knowledge and skills necessary for problem-solving and mathematical modelling at an introductory level. Differential calculus is applied to model situations in science and engineering that involve oscillations. Integral calculus is used to solve selected problems involving first- and second-order differential equations, and to calculate areas, volumes, lengths and other physical quantities. Vectors, matrix multiplication and determinants are introduced and applied to problem-solving and modelling. Sequences and series are reviewed and power series introduced where power series are used to approximate more functions.
