Reviews

An intermediate difficulty mathematics unit. If you have come from the advanced streams (MATH132/MATH133) this course will be relatively simple in comparison. But in saying that, keep on top of the lectures and the tutorials. For those who followed the mainstream first year units (MATH135/MATH136), this is just a continuation of the math. I definitely think the algebra course is more challenging, as the calculus stream focuses entirely on multivariable calculus. The algebra stream felt more haphazardly assembled. If you were supplementing the lecture notes with the recommended texts (Rorres, and for bits Lay), it was challenging to find relevant material. I found the algebra course more involved than the calculus. For the calculus part of the course, either Stewart or Hughes-Hallett texts will be fine. You are pretty much working through: functions of several variables, graphs of functions in 3d space, partial derivatives, chain rule, optimisation (Lagrange multipliers), stationary points, multiple variable integration with regards to 2 and 3 dimensional integration, elementary regions, and change of variables. For the algebra part of the course, I recommend the Rorres text, but I couldn't find anything better (I considered 12 texts on LA), the lecture notes are the best source I believe. The course covers, systems of linear equations, vector spaces, linear transformations, eigenvalues and eigenvectors of linear transformations, types of linear transformations, orthogonality, least squares, quadratic forms. I highly recommend familiarising yourself with solving assignment questions (redo them) and past papers, the final exam is very predictable in what it assesses. Compare it to MATH133 which covers everything, the MATH235 final exam focuses primarily on a few select topics. Check out the past papers early in the course and when the associated weeks come up, work through them as well. The final won't cause too much stress. I on occasion attended the numeracy centre workshops, they focused on the core ideas over challenging examples (which is totally fine), if you are struggling with the ideas behind something, I highly recommend the workshops. If you are wanting a more technical analysis or challenging questions I recommend doing them in tutorials.

Lecture are not that intersting. But workshops is a must attend if you want to pass this unit
