Mathematics 3


This module introduces students to techniques for solving second order differential equations. In addition, students are introduced to probabilistic and statistical analysis for engineering. 

Learning Outcomes

  1. Recognise and solve second order differential equations and appreciate their role in the modelling of oscillations and vibrations. 

  2. Implement suitable analytic procedures in problems involving discrete and continuous random variables and probability distributions.

  3. Perform statistical analysis with appropriate software and interpret the results.

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

  5. Communicate their mathematical knowledge and reasoning both orally and in writing.
