Reading Packs
These resources are for students
 who have not studied VCE Mathematics, or
 who have not studied for a number or years, or
 who need to revise some topics from highschool mathematics.
Select the subject that you are enrolling in:

Calculus 1
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
For students who have been admitted to Calculus 2 and/or Linear Algebra but who have not covered all the topics in Specialist Mathematics 3/4 required for these subjects, we provide the bridging notes listed below.
Topics 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 are most relevant for MAST10006 Calculus 2 and topics 5 and 6 are most relevant for MAST10007 Linear Algebra.
Topic 1. Trigonometric Functions
 reciprocal trigonometric functions
 trigonometric formulae
 inverse trigonometric functions
Topic 2. Differential Calculus
 higher order derivatives
