Level 3 Calculus

300MAC
Course Description

Teacher in Charge: Mr Lakhan

This course will enable study of mathematics beyond secondary level. Calculus has many applications and is a requirement for many tertiary courses such as Higher Mathematics, Physical Sciences, Engineering, Economics, and Surveying. This course comprises of both Internal and External standards that contribute to the total credits. All students will be required to sit for at-least two externals at the end of the  year. This course is a University recognzed subject, contributes to Numeracy  and is eligible for Course endorsement.  



Course Overview

Semester 1
In Semester 1 the following standards will be taught and assessed. These will be mostly Internals to set the basis for the externals.

AS91587 3.15 Apply systems of simultaneous equations in solving problems 3 credits Internal
AS91574 3.2 Apply linear programming methods in solving problems 3 credits Internal
AS91575 3.3 Apply trigonometric methods in solving problems 4 credits Internal


Semester 2
In Semester 2 the focus will be entirely on Externals and students will be required to sit for Mock Exams as well. the following standards will be taught in Semester 2:

AS91577 3.5 Apply the algebra of complex numbers in solving problems 5 credits External
AS91578 3.6 Apply differentiation methods in solving problems 6 credits External
AS91579 3.7 Apply integration methods in solving problems 6 credits External
