This course is a continuation of the material covered in MA1007 Introductory Mathematics 1. It is suitable for students who have taken MA1007 and is a good course for students who use some maths in their degree but do not have a strong background in the subject. Topics covered include differentiation, integration, complex numbers, vectors and matrices among others. Students are continually assessed through weekly tests, with the possibility of gaining an exemption from the final exam if the results from the weekly tests are good enough. Learning is mainly done in the students’ own time.

1st Attempt: In-course assessment (100%) for students who perform sufficiently well in weekly computerised tests. Any student who fails to achieve by in-course assessment or who wishes to upgrade CGS mark obtained, can take the end of course computerised examination (or its resit). In this case the final mark is calculated with 30% coming from the weekly tests and 70% coming from the exam.
Resit: Computerised examination similar to 1st attempt examination.
Regular computerised tests discussed during computer practicals.
