Pre-requisite: Current skills at the level of Queensland Senior Secondary School Studies Mathematics B or equivalent. Students without this level should take MAT1000 prior to doing this course. Students contemplating enrolment in MAT1100 who are not familiar with the content of at least Queensland Year 11 Maths B or its equivalent (e.g. TPP7182 Mathematics Tertiary Preparation 2) should contact the examiner before enrolling. In your e-mail please state your course of study and your mathematics background.
This course is equivalent to ENM1500. Students cannot enrol in MAT1100 if they have successfully completed or are currently enrolled in ENM1500, MAT2100, MAT1102, ENM1600 or ENM2600
Assuming current skills at the level of Queensland Senior Secondary School Studies Mathematics B, this course strengthens and further develops algebra, functions, trigonometric, exponential, logarithmic and graphing competencies, and introduces matrices, vectors and calculus. Emphasis is placed on developing strong foundation mathematical skills in these areas for use in tertiary studies, and on exploring and applying these skills to a range of contexts.
