ASSESSMENT OF OUTCOMES
By the end of the course, students should be able to
:
analyse information and organise into parts; state in own words; develop a logical sequence of steps;
substitute in formulae; apply a progression of steps to achieve an accurate answer, using a diagram or a calculator;
draw graphs of different types and read information from graphs;
draw 3D objects in 2 dimensions; draw a diagram from the text; use information in diagrammatic form;
read an applied question and formulate it mathematically in order to obtain a solution;
generate a reasoned, logical sequence of steps, including proportional reasoning;
analyse information into component parts; read actively (make sketches, exemplify); state in own words; analyse a question;
attend lectures regularly and participate actively; prepare for lectures and tutorials; submit assignments regularly;
read mathematics as a language and be able to use the symbols precisely and write coherently;
represent sets of numbers in Venn diagrams; represent domain and range of relations, functions, composite functions in a mapping diagram;
transfer understanding of linear graphs to shading of parabolas, circles, semicircles and combinations of the above;
look at the equation of a graph and read off the features and the shifts without plotting the graph;
convert Cartesian coordinates to polar coordinates; visualise, plot and read coordinates, lines and planes in 3D, find distance between any two points with 3 coordinates;
find the derivative of a function from first principles;
sketch a curve showing stationery points, asymptotes and positive and negative gradients; and
solve min/max problems using calculus.
