Preliminary Reading for Students with Non VCE Mathematics
Students
 who have not studied VCE Mathematics or
 who have not studied for a number or years or
 who need to revise some year 12 topics or
 who need to do other bridging subjects
Select the subject that you are enrolling in:

Calculus 1
MAST10005 Calculus 1 Reading Pack
Students who have not done Trigonometric Functions should read the Notes on Trigonometric Functions.
Notes on polynomial long division: How polynomial long division works

Calculus 2 & Linear Algebra
MAST10006 Calculus 2 & MAST10007 Linear Algebra Reading Packs
For students who have been admitted to Calculus 2 but who have not covered all the topics in Specialist Mathematics 3/4 required for Calculus 2, we provide the bridging notes listed below.
 All Queensland students with Mathematics B and C need to download and study topics 1 to 3. Those who have not done the conics option should also download and study topic 4.
 NSW students with Mathematics Extensions 1 but who have not done Mathematics Extensions 2 need to download and study Topics 5 and 6.
Note that Topics 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 are need for MAST10006 Calculus 2 and Topic 5 is needed for MAST10007 Linear Algebra.
Topic 1. Trigonometric Functions
 reciprocal trigonometric functions
 trigonometric formulae
 inverse trigonometric functions
Topic 2. Differential Calculus
 higher order derivatives
 implicit differentiation
 derivatives of inverse trigonometric functions
Topic 3. Integral Calculus
 standard integrals
 integration using trigonometric identities
 partial fractions and integration
Topic 4. Conic Functions
 Graphs of circles, ellipses and hyperbolae
Topic 5. Vectors
Topic 6. Complex Numbers

Accelerated Mathematics
MAST10008/10009 Accelerated Mathematics Reading Packs
For students who have been admitted to Accelerated Mathematics 1 but who have not covered all the topics in Specialist Mathematics 3/4 required for this subject, we provide reading lists (see below). The textbooks are
 AR – Anton & Rorres, Elementary Linear Algebra, Applications version, 10th edition, Wiley, 2010.
