Synopsis

Module 1 is an introduction to ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and series including direction fields, Euler's method, first order separable ODEs, first and second order linear ODEs with constant coefficients, Taylor and Fourier series. Module 2 covers multivariable calculus including representation of functions of several variables, surfaces and curves in space, partial differentiation, optimisation, directional derivatives, gradient, divergence and curl, line integrals of the 1-st and 2-nd kinds, iterated integrals, Green's theorem. Module 3 extends the linear algebra of MAT1102 Algebra and Calculus 1 to cover eigenvalues and eigenvectors, vector space, bases, dimensions, rank, systems of linear equations, symmetric matrices, transformations, diagonalisation with applications.
