Mathematics IA - MATH135

This is the first mainstream university mathematics unit; it is essential for students in engineering and many areas of science. We start with exploring the concept of a function, and continue with the notions of limit and continuity, developed to a reasonably sophisticated level. We then define the concept of derivative as a suitable construct to describe rates of change, develop the differential and integral calculus of functions of a real variable, and discuss some simple differential equations and their role as quantitative models for dynamic processes. We also study the use of vectors in two and three-dimensional Euclidean geometry, and relate this to the algebraic process of solving linear systems in several variables.
