Mathematics Y2 FY2007

Course Objectives

The course will provide students with the mathematical skills that are necessary in the course subjects. It will provide students with a foundation that will enable them to progress with the course Mathematics I.

Course Description

Integration: Indefinite and definite integrals, substitution, partial integration, partial fraction expansion, area calculations, volume of a revolution (disk-washer method).

Numerical sequences and series: Numerical sequences, arithmetical series, convergence and infinite series.

Differential equations. Separable differential equations.

Vectors. Vectors in 2- and 3-space. Vector coordinates, dot product, cross product and triple product. Lines in 3-space.

Learning Methods

5 hours of lectures and 5 hours exercises per week.

Assessment Methods

Two written mid-term tests which count for 50% and a written final examination (4 hours) which counts 50%. All tests have two parts, one with and one without facilities. Both mid-term tests or the final examination must receive passing marks in order to receive a passing mark for the course.
