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
• 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

Students who have been admitted to MAST10008 Accelerated Mathematics 1 and MAST10009 Accelerated Mathematics 2 but who have not covered all the topics in Specialist Mathematics 3/4 required for these subjects are recommended to read the materials below.
