VCE Mathematical Methods
Aims and objectives
To meet the mathematical and statistical needs of aviation students who are undertaking either the Bachelor of Aviation or Bachelor of Aviation (Management) degree and may also be undertaking a concurrent Bachelor of Business degree.
Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)
Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:
1. Identify vector quantities and carry out operations on vectors, using them in applied aviation settings such as relative velocity, ground, wind and airspeeds and heading.
2. Express complex numbers in Cartesian and polar forms, performing standard operations with these forms in algebraic and graphical representations.
3. Use tables of derivatives and integrals for simple functions and identify and use appropriate techniques to differentiate and integrate more complicated functions, applying the rules of differentiation and integration to classify stationary points, and compute areas
4. Solve basic differential equations and apply them to physical problems.
5. Apply and interpret basic concepts of probability
6. Interpret relationships between variables using descriptive statistics, correlation and regression, using key terms appropriately
7. Identify, formulate and solve problems in financial mathematics
