Mathematics 1
The objective is to develop mathematical knowledge and skills in subject areas including pre-calculus,
calculus, matrices, statistics and probability, as preparation for a wide variety of university courses.

Course outline
Semester 1
• Review of algebra and trigonometry.

• Differentiation formulae, including the product rule, quotient rule, chain rule.
• Applications of derivatives, including rates of change, equations of tangents and normals,
stationary points, curve-sketching, applied maximum/minimum problems.
• Anti-differentiation, fundamental theorem of calculus, evaluation of areas.
Semester 2
• Indefinite integrals and further applications of integration.
• Limits at infinity and improper integrals.
• Linear approximations.
• Matrix methods for solving systems of linear equations, including the triangular matrix method.
• Statistics, including tabulation and graphical representation of data, mean, median, mode,
standard deviation, variance, quartiles.

Required Texts
Maths 1 Lecture Notes (available from the Maths 1 lecturer-in-charge at Trinity College).
The Physics program aims to provide a foundation for further studies in Physics and related disciplines.
In particular, students will learn to

• develop quantitative physical models, and to be aware of the assumptions upon which these
models are based
• develop physical problem solving strategies
• apply electronic, mechanical and optical techniques of measurement in the laboratory, and
record quantitative data with associated uncertainties
• develop report writing skills, including the use of graph plotting and curve fitting packages
