68102 Maths for Secondary Education - Foundations
This subject develops the knowledge and skills necessary for problem-solving and mathematical modelling at an introductory level. Concepts in calculus are explored. Differential calculus is applied to model situations in science, engineering, and other disciplines that involve growth, change and movements. Integral calculus is used to solve selected problems involving first order differential equations, and to calculate areas, volumes, lengths and other physical quantities. Vectors 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 functions.
