Course Description

The purpose of this module is to provide participants with the skills, knowledge and attitudes required to further extend the concepts learned in Advanced Mathematics 1 to include the topics of Integral Calculus, Complex Numbers, Differential Equations, Statistics and Linear Algebra. The subject aims to show the relevance of mathematics to engineering and applied science. This module, in conjunction with Advanced Engineering Mathematics 1, also facilitates articulation to Degree courses in all streams of Engineering and forms a basis for more specialist branches of mathematics.

Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

The following module (or equivalent) should be preferably completed prior to this module:
• VBH 624 Advanced Engineering Mathematics 1

National Competency Codes and Titles

National Element Code & Title:

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner should be able to:
1. Apply the principles of Integral Calculus to solve a variety of practical problems in Engineering and Applied Science.
2. Express Complex Numbers in Cartesian, Polar, Trigonometric, Exponential and Logarithmic form, and use the theory of complex numbers to solve various practical problems in Engineering and Applied Science.
3. Apply the theory of First and Second Order Differential Equations to solve various practical problems involving the Kinematics and Kinetics of Resisted Gravitational, Simple Harmonic and Vibratory Motion.
4. Describe and represent graphically statistical data in terms of measures of Central Tendency and measures of Dispersion.
5. Use a variety of Matrix and Numerical methods, including the use of appropriate computer software to solve Systems of Equations.
