### Course Outline

An optional 1st year Chemistry course. Students studying this course take a selection of modules from the 1001 maths course.

Assessment on this course will be made on the basis of coursework (50%) and written examinations (50 minutes each) at the end of each module (50%). There is no final examination for this course.

Module 2: Calculus of functions with one variable (JC)
Differentiation; simple rules for differentiation; differentiating special functions (e.g. exp, ln, sin, cos); product rule; quotient rule; functions of functions; second derivatives; integration; evaluating integrals; properties of integrals; integration by substitution; integrating by parts; solving differential equations by separation of variables.
