This unit develops the mathematical fundamentals required for engineering, with topics including vectors, matrices, differentiation and integration. The emphasis in the unit is on developing skills in these areas within an engineering context and applying these skills to a range of engineering applications.
- Concepts of differentiation
- Techniques of differentiation
- Applications of differentiation
- Concepts of integration
- Techniques of integration
- Applications of integration
- Matrices and determinants
- Inverse matrices and linear systems
- Eigenvalues and applications of matrices
- Vectors: concepts and operations
- Vectors: geometry and applications
Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.
