### Reviews

Grade: 100. You'll do good if you do lots of practice questions and pay attention in lectures. The exam is weighted at 80% and is basically just 3 hours of lengthy computations, so you need to be good at doing lots of algebra without making silly mistakes. Also don't be intimidated by this subject if you didn't do suuper well in methods, the lecturers for this subject are very good at explaining stuff, and you'll do well in it if you put in the work. Just make sure you remember the basics (e.g. chain rule, pythagorean identity) and you'll be able to understand everything in this subject even if you didn't do specialist

Well taught with occasionally challenging conent, good first subject for uni.

Grade: 97. Overall: well-run and -coordinated subject with intellectually murderous content sometimes. Lectures are fast-paced but go through examples. Tutorials get you thinking beyond what you need to know. Workshops contain simple exercises equivalent to the average exam question (harder exam q's lie between workshop and tutorial level). There are plenty of questions in the workbook and past exams that you should utilize to score well. It is tough, but spend time really understanding areas you don't quite get to do your best!

Grade: 77 (H2A) - Pretty easy subject if you put in the work. It's all about doing lots of practice questions and making sure you have a deep understanding of the concepts. The exam has some tough questions but no surprises. The concepts are not hard to grasp, it's mainly the algebra that screws a lot of people especially under time pressure. The assignments and webwork are fairly basic, averaged 95. Do all the prac exams so you don;t make silly mistakes like me. Overall, defs a wam booster, highly recommend.

I found this subject surprisingly easy, much easier than Specialist or Methods. I was quite stressed going into it, having done average in VCE methods, but it was very straightforward. The exam only covers content covered in detail in class, so don't stress about annoying paragraph-long application questions or trick questions. While some of the content is a bit confusing I think it's relatively accessible for most people with a bit of effort. It also gets easier with time - the first couple of weeks will be the hardest, so don't stress. I also felt it was well taught and both tutorials and workshops, as well as lectures, were all useful. Would recommend.

This subject was great fun! I would strongly recommend anyone interested in maths and engineering to do it.

Grade: H1 (95) Workload: 3 1 Hour lectures each week, that cover content along with example questions to show the concepts. There are 9 weekly assignments starting from week 3 onwards, and they vary in difficulty. Personally I found the assignments got easier and easier as the course progressed, with some of the earlier assignments being on the trickier side and requiring a bit of thought and problem solving to finish. On the hardest one, I personally spent like 8-12 hours on one because of how difficult I found it. However, as I mentioned, there is a mix of difficulties, with the easiest assignment taking me like 30 minutes to do near the end of the semester. On average though, I'd say you'd be spending 2-3 hours on the assignments, so not a major assessable workload. However, what is important to note, is that just because the assessable workload is small, doesn't mean you can just slack off. I highly recommend attending the practicals (not the workshops), and working through as much questions as possible in that timeframe with your group. I personally ditched the workshops because I found the questions really boring and easy compared to the more difficult ones in the practicals. Personally I found this subject not too difficult to understand. It felt like a natural extension of VCE Maths methods (Standard year 12 maths) and flowed fairly well with the knowledge covered in that subject. Also, as an aside, if you didn't do amazing in Maths methods like getting a raw 47 or whatever, don't let that scare you off from taking this subject. I scored a raw 41 for it, and I found this subject manageable to understand and work on. In general I'd say if you scored 35+ raw in methods you should find this subject fine with a bit of hard work. The exam is definitely an important one though, however. At an 80% weightage, it is imperative you score well on it. Personally I found this sem's exam conceptually simple, but arithmetically difficult; it was still easier compared to 2018 and 2019 exams though, but more difficult than 2020. You definitely need to work through the past exams in SWOTVAC, and the problem booklet is also important too. Don't leave the problem booklet to the last minute like I did, as it meant unnecessary stress. Time yourself in exam conditions while attempting the exam, so that you are ready for the real deal. Administration: Pretty well run subject, the tutors and lecturers are good, and the lectures are well presented. Enjoyment: I found this subject fairly enjoyable, although some of the arithmetic needed for the questions was definitely annoying.

Basically the same as spesh maths vce. But the content can be a bit dry and boring at times.

## Anonymous, Semester 1, 2020

Equivalent to specialist mathematics. Lots of content, and need to put in effort, but very rewarding.

Definitely need to put effort into this subject... BUT relatively easy to understand. Previous years past papers were extremely difficult but I think they've made it somewhat easier for this semester's exam. Assignments might be difficult but the exams are all covered within the lecturers, so there's really no surprise. As long as you put time and effort into this subject, you'll do just fine. If you'd previously done IB SL, CALC 1 is way harder than what you'd expect.
