This is one of the best maths subjects I've taken in this semester expanded upon MAST10006 CALCULUS 2 and a little of Linear Algebra MAST10007. Got a H2B in this semester I recommend coming to consultations and practise a lot of exam papers, complete all tutorials, assessments, lectures and other material to help you. Overall, the recent exam paper has more than half the questions were remixed and builds up the complexity unlike past exams.If you love mathematics this is the subject for you.

Christine is the best, really enjoyable subject which comes all together in the end.

This is an incredible subject! Very well coordinated and you learn lots of different integration techniques that are useful in real life applications!

This has definitely been my favourite subject so far. This subject starts off quite light, beginning with limits, continuity and derivatives of multi-variable scalar functions as well as some other topics such as Taylor series. Later it moves on to the meat of the subject- gradient, curl and divergence (differentiation), and line, surface, volume integrals (integration). These concepts are combined at the end with various Vector Calculus theorems, before finally quickly covering curvilinear coordinates which has applications, among others, in physics. This subject, when I did it in 2016 Semester 1, has 3 lectures and a tutorial each week. They are definitely worth attending- only half of the slides are recorded on Lecture Capture, unfortunately, and that was a problem for me as I could only attend one lecture per week due to clashes. My lecturer was very engaged and easy to understand (in spite of an accent) and this really helped me when trying to follow him while listening on Lecture Capture. This subject has four assignments (5% each), each handed out a week before due date, as well as an end of semester exam. Don't forget to learn all the definitions and statements, particularly of the theorems (like Stokes' Theorem)

doing past exams as much as possible

Back when Paul Pearce took it, it was pretty dull. No recordings, slow lecturer...wasn't enjoyable. However, the subject content is still vital for many areas of physics and maths and it is intrinsically interesting. It's also not that hard as many of the questions are computational.

This subject is essential for any physics student. It's also worth taking if you're a pure maths student so you can take MAST30024 or MAST90029. It's relatively easy but still requires a lot of practice if you want to do well in the final exam.

This is quite an easy subject, and doesnt eequire the rigure needed in other math subjects, which is why those who aren't as interested in maths will probably like it, but for those wanting to persue pure maths, just grin and bare it, it gets better.

Hugely important and interesting but has been poorly taught of late. Big step up from first year, so be prepared to work harder.

A good continuation of Calculus 2 (with a touch of Linear Algebra), this subject is quite nice in the sense that there is nothing too difficult to get your head around, and most of the subject comes together very nicely, probably more so than any other subject I've done so far (which could mean that falling behind near the start will make things VERY difficult) which means that while it may seem that there's a lot to remember, it all fits together nicely. Be warned, this subject does assume a reasonable understanding of Physics, and also while lectures are recorded, apparently they were very bad recordings (although I went to every lecture myself so it didn't affect me).
