Mathematics 1


This module is designed to introduce students to the fundamental mathematical concepts and techniques used in the practice of engineering and, in the process, help students to begin to develop the skill of analysing problems in a logical manner, and the ability to transfer their mathematical understanding to engineering applications. 

Learning Outcomes

  1. Manipulate symbolic statements and expressions according to the transformational rules of mathematics.

  2. Recognise that mathematical functions can be used to model various engineering phenomena and apply appropriate techniques to analyse and solve engineering-based problems.

  3. Formulate and use mathematical representations (symbolic, numeric, graphical, visual, verbal) and identify their relations, advantages and limitations. 

  4. Critique a peer's work objectively and communicate constructive feedback orally and in writing.

  5. Communicate orally, and in written form, the reasoning and procedure for solving a mathematical problem.
