Modelling Continuous Change (MATHS2016)

This course forms part of a general sequence of mathematics courses which provides mathematical tools to model phenomena in the physical, engineering, biological and mathematical sciences. It will be taught at an intermediate level. It is aimed at an audience with sound mathematical background and interest in solving real world problems. The main focus will be on differential equations, the tools to solve them, and their applications to model motion, growth and change. We will also consider problems whose solution may require both basic and advanced mathematics or statistics techniques. The course will be particularly valuable to science and engineering students, prospective senior secondary school mathematics teachers, and any student interested in improving their understanding of these commonly encountered concepts and applications of mathematics.

Commonwealth supported place (CSP)

A CSP is subsidised by the Australian Government and students pay a contribution amount. Each course of study (subject) is classified into a student contribution band, depending on the study area of the course (this discipline may be different from the study area of your program).

2024 contribution amount* - $555
2024 contribution amount - continuing student who commenced before 1 Jan 2021* - $555

* for Clinical Psychology (Clin Psych) & Professional Pathways (Prof Path) bands the contribution amount is determined by accredited program. Students in Postgraduate Clinical Psychology, Professional Pathway Psychology or Professional Pathway Social Work accredited programs should visit our CSP page for further information.

Note: The Job-ready Graduates Package introduced new funding clusters and contribution amounts from the 2021 academic year. If you are a continuing student who commenced before 1 January 2021 studying course in disciplines with increased contribution amounts, you will continue paying the same amount (indexed each year) as you would have. For further information visit the Australia Government's Study Assist website.

Domestic Full Fee-paying

These places are offered for postgraduate studies or to CSP ineligible students and tuition fees are not subsidised by the Australian Government. Domestic postgraduate tuition fees are program-based annual fees and the course (subject) fee you pay will vary according to the degree you are studying. To find out more about domestic tuition fees and view the relevant fee schedule visit our fees website.

International Full Fee-paying

International tuition fees are program-based annual fees and the course (subject) fee you pay will vary according to the degree you are studying. To find out more about international tuition fees and view the relevant fee schedule visit our fees website.
