Vector algebra and geometry: equations of lines and planes. Linear algebra: matrix
operations, up to 3x3 systems of linear equations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors.
Calculus: improper integrals, integration by parts. Sequences and series: fundamentals
of convergence, Taylor series, use in error analysis. Ordinary differential equations: first
order, second order with constant coefficients, repeated roots, simple non-
homogeneous cases. Laplace transforms: elementary functions, inversion by tables;
shifting; derivatives, applications to ODEs. Multivariable calculus: partial derivatives,
gradient and directional derivatives, maxima and minima.
**MCD4500 Engineering Mathematics for Engineering is compulsory if you want to study a Bachelor of Computer
Science. You may also be required to complete MCD4490 Advanced Mathematics dependent on the
level of mathematics you entered the Diploma of Information Technology.
