MATH11219 Engineering Mathematics

Course details

In this course students apply the essential calculus concepts, processes and techniques to develop mathematical models for engineering problems. They use the Fundamental Theorem of Calculus to illustrate the relationship between the derivative and the integral of a function and apply the theorem to engineering problems involving definite integrals. Differential calculus is used to construct mathematical models which investigate a variety of rate of change and optimisation problems. The standard rules and techniques of integration are included. Differential equations are introduced and applied to investigate more interesting problems in an engineering setting. Other important elements of this course are the communication of results, concepts and ideas using mathematics as a language, being able to document the solution to problems in a way that demonstrates a clear, logical and precise approach and communicating, working and learning in peer learning teams where appropriate. Distance education (FLEX) students will be required to have significant access to a computer and make frequent use of the internet.
