This subject provides an introduction to calculus and linear algebra, with an emphasis on understanding and applications addressed in geometry, physics, economics and environmental modelling. A symbolic algebra package Maple is used to assist with computation. Every topic will be presented geometrically, numerically and algebraically. Formal definitions will be based on investigation and practical problems.
