### Reviews

This unit has a lot of theory in a small amount of time, and can be quite difficult straight out of VCE specialist, but overall I enjoyed the variety of the content. The exam was quite difficult because of the very limited formula sheet.

Be ready, this subject is fine and really well run, the lectures are engaging and my experience with the support classes were positive. However there is quite a bit of content covered and the problems they may give you in the exam can feel like you never even touched on that particular one. if you stay ontop of the work and up to speed week by week then you should have no worries!

What you really need to do for this subject is get your head around the concepts, which can be a little mystifying to students who are not mathematically minded. Understanding improper integrals, for instance - you need to see where the discontinuity is and realize that we are just excluding parts of a function that are not defined. It is not as hard as it looks if you get the right tutor (hint) :) Understanding Taylor's series - you need to realize what a Taylor series is actually useful for. By finding the Taylor series for a simple function, which anyone in ENG1005 will be able to do, you have essentially found the Taylor series for all (more complex) functions that have the same structural form. This will make laborious Taylor problems easy - it is how they should be done. Planes in space and simple geometric stuff like that make a lot more sense when we work on finding their normal vector, which is always right there in the equation of the plane. Point-line distance problems are only slightly more difficult, as the normal to a line isn't plonked in your face, but if you get the right person to walk you through it you should be fine. Matrix algebra is straight forward if you actually make sure you are comprehending what a matrix is, in that it is (hopefully) a set of consistent equations and, if they solve for an x vector, these planes will intersect at the point which is at the tip of this vector x. If the system is underdetermined it will generally solve for a line, instead of a point. ODE's are all good if you just use the integrating factor with your first order ODE's. Don't bother with guessing unless you can see that you are not going to have to do a lot of mucking around finding your unknown coefficients. Second order ODE's all have constant coefficients, so solution guesses all have the same form, which basically means that you end up dealing with something called a characteristic polynomial. You can be taught very systematic and watertight ways of getting these things right every single time. Laplace transforms allow you to express differential equations as the nice looking polynomials that we all know and love. Anyone who likes maths will love these things. Partial derivatives are hella easy and a great way of understanding calculus a bit better, since you start to realise what a little step (a dx, for instance) means with regard to something in R3. Directional derivatives and stuff all flow straight on from there. Understanding what the gradient vector actually gives you will get you extra exam marks.

Fairly straightforward coursework. As long as you keep up with the work, there shouldn't be many problems. The exam is a massive surprise, however, and to do well, you must be prepared for just about anything they can throw at you. All in all, well run, Leo is very engaging and his teaching style almost makes math fun.

Exam was in balanced and I felt myself not needed if 50% of the course content that I studied and there also needs to be a much better set out in the lecturers they were poorly executed and I didn’t feel like I learnt anything

Can be a bit of an overload at first as many new concepts are coming in left, right and centre. The tutorial questions are your best resource for practising, and it's important not to fall behind!

Do sums as much as possible. Try to do more than 5 examples for each new concept learned.
