MATH111: Applied Mathematical Modelling I

This page contains material for the course: MATH 111 Applied Mathematical Modelling I.

About the course

This course emphasises the physical, mathematical and computational aspects of applied mathematics in science, engineering and industry (including financial applications). The aim of the course is to provide students with some fundamental mathematical modelling skills that are useful in a range of scientific and commercial activities. Students will learn how to model a real-world problem as an idealised mathematical system, how to solve the representative mathematical problem and how to interpret the results.

Student learning


Your final mark in MATH111 will be determined as follows (*). Four marks will be calculated using scheme one (S1), scheme two (S2), scheme three (S3) and scheme four (S4).
Scheme S1 S2 S3 S4
Final Exam 60% 50% 50% 50%
Mid-session Exam 20% 20% 20% 10%
Computer assignments 15% 25% 20% 30%
Assignments 5% 5% 10% 10%

Note that you are not required to ``pass'' each individual component to receive a Pass grade in MATH111. However, you would seriously jeopardise your chances of passing this subject if you do not aim to be successful in every component of the assessment.
