Overview of Assessment
A person who demonstrates competency in this unit must be able to perform in differentiation and integration applied to practical engineering applications. Competency in this unit cannot be claimed until all prerequisites have been satisfied.
You are required to complete the following three assessment tasks:
2 assignments 20%. each
Final Test 60%.
Assignments will include practical problems of Differentiation (Assgn 1) and integration (Assgn 2).
The open book test will consist of Differentiation and Integration problems.
All assessment tasks need to be succesfully completed to demonstrate competence.
Assignments - Elements 1 - 4
Final test - Elements 1 - 4

If you require an Extension of Submittable Work (assignments, reports or project work etc.) for 7 calendar days or less (from the original due date) and have valid reasons, you must complete and lodge an Application for Extension of Submittable Work (7 Calendar Days or less) form and lodge it with the Senior Educator/ Program Manager.
The application must be lodged no later than one working day before the official due date. You will be notified within
no more than 2 working days of the date of lodgment as to whether the extension has been granted.
If you seek an Extension of Submittable Work for more than 7 calendar days (from the original due date) must lodge an Application for Special
Consideration form under the provisions of the Special Consideration Policy, preferably prior to, but no later than 2 working days
after the official due date.
Submittable Work (assignments, reports or project work etc.) submitted late without approval of an extension will not be accepted or marked.
