To provide students with the necessary skills and confidence to apply a range of mathematical methods to problems in the physical sciences. We build on the methods developed in MATH1006 (or MATH1008) but extend many of the ideas from ordinary functions to vector valued functions which, for example, may be used to describe forces or electromagnetic fields in 3 dimensional space. We also look at the issue of solving differential equations, a topic of great importance in modelling the real world.
One of the pre-requisites for MATH2015, MATH2038 and MATH2045
Prerequisites: MATH1006 OR MATH1008
