Module code: H1033
Level 4
15 credits in autumn teaching
Teaching method: Class, Lecture
Assessment modes: Unseen examination, Coursework

The module will be taught using the Helping Engineers Learn Mathematics (HELM) resource.

Thorough revision of A-Level Maths topics, particularly:

  • differential calculus
  • integral calculus
  • algebraic manipulation of functions
  • vectors
  • matrix algebra including determinants
  • Eigenvalues and Eigenvectors.

Then new material:

  • complex numbers
  • further differentiation
  • integration
  • partial differentiation
  • curves and functions.

Module learning outcomes

  • Have a good capability to manipulate complicated algebraic expressions
  • Perform differential and integral calculus on a single variable
  • Manipulate complex numbers and have an appreciation of their applications in engineering analysis
  • Perform differential and integral calculus on more than one variable and have an appreciation of its applications in engineering analysis
