The University of New England is the only Australian public university to be awarded the maximum 5 stars for Overall Experience by the Good Universities Guide, 13 years in a row. UNE has delivered distance education since 1955—that’s longer than any other Australian university. Perhaps that’s why students continue to rate UNE so highly for student satisfaction and teaching quality. With over 170 degrees offered online, and more than 22,000 students, UNE is an expert in online education.

Our student advisors are here to guide you with:
- Enrolling and eligibility
- Fee and loan information
- Credit and recognition for prior learning
Upon completion of this subject, students will be able to:
- identify and apply appropriate techniques of integration, such as integration by parts, substitution, and partial fractions, to a range of functions of one variable;
- identify and apply appropriate tests for convergence of a range of infinite series, and relate this concept to the power series expansion and approximation of smooth functions;
- relate the concept of implicit parametrisation to the loci of a range of plane curves as represented in either cartesian or polar coordinates, and apply this with integration to compute arc-length;
- identify and apply appropriate techniques to solve elementary differential equations of first or second order, placed in the context of specific mathematical models from physical and biological science; and
- compute determinants, eigenvalues and eigenvectors of matrices in terms of real, or more generally, complex numbers where necessary, and appreciate their significance in mathematical modelling.
- Topics will be available to enrolled students in the subjects Learning Management System site approximately one week prior to the commencement of the teaching period.
You must either have successfully completed the following subject(s) before starting this subject, or currently be enrolled in the following subject(s) in a prior study period; or enrol in the following subject(s) to study prior to this subject:
Please note that your enrolment in this subject is conditional on successful completion of these prerequisite subject(s). If you study the prerequisite subject(s) in the study period immediately prior to studying this subject, your result for the prerequisite subject(s) will not be finalised prior to the close of enrolment. In this situation, should you not complete your prerequisite subject(s) successfully you should not continue with your enrolment in this subject. If you are currently enrolled in the prerequisite subject(s) and believe you may not complete these all successfully, it is your responsibility to reschedule your study of this subject to give you time to re-attempt the prerequisite subject(s)
To enrol in this subject you will need to pass UNE-MTHS120. Please note as UNE results are released after the close of enrolment date, your enrolment into this subject will be withdrawn if you do not receive a satisfactory result for UNE-MTHS120.

Students are expected to purchase prescribed material.
Textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
Advanced calculus techniques are an essential tool for scientists modelling complex systems, from electromagnetic oscillations to the spread of infectious diseases. Integrating with other offerings in calculus and linear algebra this subject not only provides you with methods applied across the natural and social sciences but also with a theoretical foundation allowing you to pursue further study in mathematics. You will explore topics with broad applications, including linear mappings (determinant and eigenvectors), further techniques of integration and improper integrals, infinite series and Taylor series, parametric equations and implicit equations, and basic differential equations.
Assessment 1 to Assessment 9: Notes - Mathematical calculations and problem solving. Relates to Learning Outcomes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5. Final Examination: 2 hrs 15 mins. Notes - It is mandatory to pass this examination in order to pass this unit. To obtain a distinction in this unit, a student must obtain a distinction in the examination. Relates to Learning Outcomes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 There is a supervised exam at the end of the teaching period in which you are enrolled. The exam will be offered online with supervision via webcam and screen sharing technology. Coordinated by UNE Exams Unit. UNE manages supervised exams associated with your UNE subjects. Prior to census date, UNE releases exam timetables. They’ll email important exam information directly to your UNE email address.
