Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1 use further calculus techniques for differentiation and integration and the concepts of differential equations
2 Formulate linear algebra concepts and techniques for matrices and vectors
3 proficiency in applying mathematical techniques within Calculus and Linear Algebra to application problems
4 communicate mathematical ideas, processes and results effectively
