Calculus and Linear Algebra 1

About this subject

  • Upon completion of this subject, students will be able to:

    1. apply the concept of limit to a range of infinite sequences, and relate this to the concept of continuity in the context of specific functions;
    2. relate the concept of derivative to variable rates of change in natural processes, identify and apply appropriate techniques of differentiation to a range of functions, locate and classify maxima and minima of functions, and apply all of these to one-variable problems of optimisation;
    3. relate the concept of definite integral to area, volume and the general accumulation of a quantity prescribed initially in terms of density, compute integrals of functions via elementary anti-differentiation and elementary changes of variable; and
    4. solve systems of linear equations, and classify the solution sets as being either uniquely determined, underdetermined, or overdetermined.
