Unformatted text preview: ALGEBRA SYLLABUS AND LECTURE TIMETABLE The algebra course for MATH1151 is based on the MATH1151 Algebra Notes, which are essential
reading and must be brought to all algebra tutorials. There is very little overlap between this
syllabus and the algebra speciﬁed in the NSW HSC curriculum. The computer package MATLAB
will be used in the MATH1151 algebra course. An approximate lecture timetable is given below.
The lecturer will try to keep to this timetable, but variations might be unavoidable, especially due
to public holidays. Chapter 1. Introduction to Vectors Lectures 1—4 Vector quantities. Rules for addition and scalar multiplication of geometric vectors. Brief mention of matrices for Matlab applications. Addition of vectors and multiplication by scalars.
(Section 1.1) Vector quantities and R”. (Section 1.2) Analytic geometry and other applications. (Section 1.3) Points, line segments and lines. Displacements. Lines in R2, R3, and R”. (Section 1.4)
Parametric vector equations for planes in IR”. The linear equation form of a plane. (Section 1.5) ...
