MATH1011 Fundamentals of Mathematics
MATH1011 is a Level I Mathematics course intended for students who are in specific programs (such as Industrial Design), or who do not have sufficient Assumed Knowledge for direct entry into MATH1131, Mathematics 1A. See the course overview below. This course is not available as a General Education course or as a free elective.
Units of credit: 6
Assumed knowledge: A level of knowledge equivalent to achieving a mark of at least 60 in HSC Mathematics is assumed; students who have taken HSC General Mathematics will not have achieved this level. Students who have completed HSC Mathematics, but have not achieved a mark of at least 60 are advised to complete an appropriate Bridging Course before the commencement of semester. Otherwise, they are advised to seek help from the Director of First Year Mathematics.
Exclusions: DPST1013, MATH1031, ECON1202 or not enrolled in 3991 or any UNSW Business Program.
Cycle of offering: Terms 1 & 3
Graduate attributes: The course will enhance your research, inquiry and analytical thinking abilities.
The Online Handbook entry contains up-to-date timetabling information.
If you are currently enrolled in MATH1011, you can log into UNSW Moodle for this course.
For general advice, see advice on choosing first-year courses.
MATH1011 has two lecture strands, one in Calculus and one in Algebra, and introduces students to MAPLE, a computer based mathematical software package.
The Calculus strand emphasises curve sketching and develops the basic theory of differentiation, which can be thought of as the mathematical study of change, and of integration, which can be thought of as the mathematical study of area. One of the most practical results in mathematics, the Fundamental Theorem of the Calculus, states the surprising result that these theories are intimately connected. Modelling with the exponential function and the study of separable differential equations are given prominence in this strand.
The Algebra strand revises the theory of the trigonometric functions, and begins the study of vectors and matrices: with these two tools we can cope with simultaneous equations involving many variables. Complex numbers are also studied as they are needed when solving polynomial equations.

Replacement and Additional Assessment Examinations (R/AA Exams)
Students are encouraged to read the University's R/AA exam information on the University’s Examinations webpage here:
- Student Feedback
The University places a high priority on approaches to learning and teaching that enhance the student experience. Feedback is sought from students in a variety of ways including on-going engagement with staff, the use of online discussion boards and the use of Student Experience of Learning and Teaching (SELT) surveys as well as GOS surveys and Program reviews.
SELTs are an important source of information to inform individual teaching practice, decisions about teaching duties, and course and program curriculum design. They enable the University to assess how effectively its learning environments and teaching practices facilitate student engagement and learning outcomes. Under the current SELT Policy (http://www.adelaide.edu.au/policies/101/) course SELTs are mandated and must be conducted at the conclusion of each term/semester/trimester for every course offering. Feedback on issues raised through course SELT surveys is made available to enrolled students through various resources (e.g. MyUni). In addition aggregated course SELT data is available.
- Student Support
- Policies & Guidelines
This section contains links to relevant assessment-related policies and guidelines - all university policies.
- Fraud Awareness
Students are reminded that in order to maintain the academic integrity of all programs and courses, the university has a zero-tolerance approach to students offering money or significant value goods or services to any staff member who is involved in their teaching or assessment. Students offering lecturers or tutors or professional staff anything more than a small token of appreciation is totally unacceptable, in any circumstances. Staff members are obliged to report all such incidents to their supervisor/manager, who will refer them for action under the university's student’s disciplinary procedures.
The University of Adelaide is committed to regular reviews of the courses and programs it offers to students. The University of Adelaide therefore reserves the right to discontinue or vary programs and courses without notice. Please read the important information contained in the disclaimer.
