MTH206 introduces the analysis of pure mathematics, Topics include operations such as differentiation and integration, arising from infinite limiting processes. Students should have a sound knowledge of mathematics, as developed in Analysis I.

Level: 2
Credit Units: 5
Presentation Pattern: Every January
E-Learning: BLENDED - Learning is done MAINLY online using interactive study materials in Canvas. Students receive guidance and support from online instructors via discussion forums and emails. This is supplemented with SOME face-to-face sessions. If the course has an exam component, this will be administered on-campus.
