Course Objectives/ Course outcome:
To provide students with knowledge and understanding of a range of mathematical techniques appropriate to engineering.
At the end of this set of modules the student should be able to:
manipulate algebraic expressions and equations.
Understand and apply appropriately inverse functions, trigonometric functions, polynomial functions, rational functions, circular functions, conic section.
Understand the concept of Limit and continuity.
Understand the meaning of a derivative, be able to differentiate simple functions, products and quotients, and be able to use the chain rule and differentials.
In particular the course will concentrate on learning to use mathematics as a tool and will include many worked examples.
