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 20,000 online students, UNE is the expert in online education.
Upon completion of this unit, 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 have successfully completed the following subject(s) before starting this subject:

- SoftwareDetails - Please refer students to link for requirements: http://www.une.edu.au/current-students/support/it-services/hardware It is essential for students to have reliable internet access in order to participate in and complete your units, regardless of whether they contain an on campus attendance or intensive school component.
- TravelDetails - Travel may be required to attend the Final Examination for this subject.
- OtherDetails -
Textbook information is not available until approximately 8 weeks prior to the commencement of the Teaching period.
Students are expected to purchase prescribed material.
Textbook requirements may vary from one teaching period to the next.
In order to model complex systems such as electromagnetic oscillations or the spread of infectious diseases, scientists must apply advanced calculus techniques. This unit couples with the other Calculus and Linear Algebra units and teaches students important methods that can be applied across the natural and social sciences, but also provides a theoretical foundation that allows further study in mathematics.
Topics covered include 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 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.
