The module aims to teach mathematical methods relevant for engineering. The first part is about differential equations and how solve them, from ordinary differential equations to partial differential equations. The second part is about either vector calculus (for Mech, Ship, Aero and ISVR) or statistics (for Civil Engineering).
There are 3 lectures and 1 problem class per week. Problems are assigned each week. They are discussed in the problem class and then the solutions are posted on blackboard.
Feedback and student support during module study (formative assessment)
- Entire cohort: 4 on-line coursework assignments, which are marked as soon as they are completed and the corrected answers are given. Fully worked out solutions are posted on blackboard after the deadline.
For Mech, Ship, Aero and ISVR: 2 additional on-line coursework.
For Civil Engineering: coursework in the form of Minitab exercises
- 1 class test
- Lecture notes, coursework assignments, solutions and past examination papers available on the blackboard site
One of the pre-requisites for MATH3083 and MATH3084
