There is no branch of mathematics, however abstract, which may not someday be applied to the phenomena of the real world
This course introduces some basic applied mathematics, with an emphasis on numerical and symbolic computation using Mathematica.
The objectives of this course are:
No single text is ideal for this course, so there is no recommended text.
The Student Version of Mathematica is available from ITS via SISO. The Student Licence number is L3245-0588. After installation, you will need to register on the Wolfram website to request a password.

Comments on questions posed during lectures will be located here .
Lectopia recordings for this unit are available here.
Each Wednesday (except PROSH day) from 3-6 pm there is a lab session in the Mathematics Computer Lab. There are 11 assignments in total, and these will be made progressively available here.
Assignment solutions will be made progressively available here.
