MATH199 is a course in calculus and linear algebra. This STAR course is designed for bright secondary school students who have excelled in level 3 NCEA Mathematics (or equivalent) and wish to take level 100 mathematics while still at school.

MATH199 (C) is a two semester, 30-point programme, aligned with MATH102 in Semester 1 and MATH103 in Semester 2. Although the primary source for content is online, MATH199 students  will be required to attend a class from 4.15pm to 6.30pm every Thursday during the UC term times.

MATH199 (C) runs to a UC year. There will be an introductory session for the local students the week before the course begins, on Thursday 13th February, 4:15pm-5:30pm, in lecture theatre E5 (Engineering Core Building).

This is a course on linear algebra and calculus. Linear algebra is about matrices and vectors, and deals mainly with the algebraic problems of solving systems of linear equations. It is also used to solve problems in geometry. The calculus part of the course deals with derivatives, integrals, differential equations, infinite series and the application of these ideas.

For further information about the topics covered and course aims, see MATH102 and MATH103.

Recommended preparation:
About 20 credits of mathematics with a good proportion of excellences at NCEA Level 3, or the equivalent for students not doing a full NCEA programme.


Subject to approval of the Head of School.
