|Subject Description|| |
This subject covers fundamental concepts about functions and their inverses using examples such as the logarithmic, exponential and trigonometric functions. Differential and integral calculus will also be studied. In the probability section of the course both Discrete and Continuous Random Variables are studied in particular Binomial and Normal Distributions. You will need to work through topics from Module One and/or Module Two (as appropriate) each week. For each of the topics you should:
This subject covers similar material to the Victorian Certificate of Education (VCE) subject, Mathematical Methods 3/4 and provides a firm foundation for tertiary mathematics study. As such, the subject Calculus and Probability will stand as an equivalent prerequisite to Mathematical Methods Units 3/4 for entry to the Bachelors of Science, Commerce and Biomedicine and Bachelor of Agriculture at the University of Melbourne, as well as for particular subjects within those degree programs.
This subject will not count for credit towards any degree program offered by The University of Melbourne.
|Entry Requirements|| |
The subject Calculus and Probability builds on material covered in VCE Mathematical Methods 1/2 and you are strongly recommended to have completed that subject, or a subject equivalent to it, before attempting this subject. It is the responsibility of each student to determine if their prior study meets these requirements.

|Additional Information|| |
Technical requirements - Participation in the subject requires access to the internet using a device with a Windows or Mac operating system. The subject is delivered through the University of Melbourne's Learning Management System (LMS) that can be accessed via a student account that you will receive when you enrol in the subject.
The subject uses Zoom for conducting online tutorials, which requires a video and audio connection with your device and is most effective through a laptop or PC. You will be sent an email invitation to attend a session at a given time each week - more information will be given to you before the first session.
Assignments will need to be completed by hand and submitted via the Turnitin system on the LMS. You will need to either save your work as a single pdf or scan it as a pdf in order to submit it. There are strict deadlines for the submission of assignments for them to be considered in your assessment. Assessment of the assignments will count for 24% of your final mark. An examination for each module will be held in the examination week and will constitute 76% of your final mark.
The examination is a handwritten examination, which must be properly supervised either at the University of Melbourne (Parkville) or at a supervised location that you must arrange yourself and have approved by the subject coordinator. See guidelines. Grades and Certification Students will receive notification of their grades for the subject once the examination has been marked.
