Reviews

tl;dr - good subject, challenging but rewarding, do the work and try to enjoy learning the new concepts (+ why they are useful) and it will most likely pay off. This is a really good subject. Do not be afraid of it or dissuaded by past student's comments as to its difficulty. If you work hard by doing all the tutorial sheets and problem booklet (imo most useful tool) a H1 is achievable. I didn't do specialist or higher level maths in high school but was able to achieve a H1 (82) with some consistent work and by showing interest (doing MAST10005 definitely gives an idea to the pace of learning - but MAST10006 is notably more difficult obviously). Get help when you need it in consults as the tutors are often sitting in zoom rooms alone and very helpful. Past exams are good to do but I would not recommend focusing too much on the hard questions - learn how the questions are written and how you can extend/apply your understanding to more difficult questions. All of the exams have some really tough questions on them. The exam is never going to be easy - it is going to have some very difficult questions on it to separate 90s from 80s from 70s, etc,... One thing I would recommend is get good at algebraic manipulations and calculations with annoying numbers. The exam questions will never have nice numbers to work with and it is important that stupid mistakes are not coming from getting addition/subtraction incorrect. Assignments are weekly but I think they are relatively straightforwards and you should be able to get full marks if you review tutorial questions carefully and are rigorous in your solutions. I personally think that the problem booklet is the most useful tool at your disposal - it exposes you to a wide range of question types and also gives you repetition. Topics such as trig/hyperbolic substitutions are invariable on exams but require particular methods/workings. Use of the discussion boards will help to get an understanding of what some full solutions may look like (only answers are provided with many questions stating "explanation required, etc..").

This subject was difficult but also great fun! I would strongly recommend anyone interested in maths to do it.

Can be very hard if you don't adjust to university level maths quickly, but overall it is a very interesting and rewarding subject. Trithang is an excellent lecturer and there are a ton of resources given to students to excel. Standard subject where you are given partially filled lecture notes to fill in as you watch the lectures, and you are given a problem booklet to do problems after watching lectures.

Fundamental subject for mathematics and engineering disciplines. Well taught, lots of resources available.

This is a hard subject but if you put in the effort, it really does pay off. Get on top of assignments and look at feedback so you know exactly what your tutors are looking for. Work with others and do lots of practice. As this was my first maths subject out of high school, it was a little bit of a shock but it quickly highlights the pace of university maths and helps you develop skills to tackle the topics. Some of it will be revision if you did VCE Specialist Maths but most of it is new. If you end up doing Civil/Mechanical/Mechatronics or something along those lines, the spring stuff will definitely come up again. I've referred to my notes from Calc 2 at least once per semester after finishing this subject.

Pretty easy H1, keep up with the work, get help when you need it, that's honestly all you need to do to get a high mark in Calculus. I skipped calc 1, went straight from specialist, some bits are pretty similar, in general pretty easy. The part I struggled with the most was limits, as long as u follow the steps they give you, you will be fine. I didn't attend any of the tutorials, I did the worksheets myself, which was honestly good enough.

A nice extension from high school with second-order ODEs, hyperbolic functions, and functions of 2 variables. Lectures were easy to follow and it's a big subject so you can always find help. Only negative to the subject is the lack of rigour and its "fill in the blanks' style. I think there is an advanced course next year with more emphasis on proof and rigour.

It's calculus. It's hard. My maths honestly improved from this subject alone though there's a lot of content and a lot of questions to do so it does take time. Assignments can be pretty hard, mostly because during semester you might be focused on other things. Overall it's a good subject. If you only need to get 25 points worth of maths credit, I'd choose Linear over this provided you've done Calculus 1.

Although quite a difficult subject that requires quite a bit of work, Calculus 2 is incredibly interesting! It definitely sets you up for any further subjects in Maths, Engineering, and more!

I really enjoyed this subject, and it has been very useful for later subjects in maths, physics and chemistry. It was well taught and explained, and the number of example questions given in the tutorials was more than I dreamed for. The end stuff on differential equations was a bit hard, but you'll be fine if you attend every lecture and revise regularly. (P.S. I took this subject in semester 2, 2012, but that doesn't appear in the drop-down menu, so I'll select semester 1, 2017, which is the oldest option available.)
