Regardless of the mode of delivery, represent a guide to the relative teaching time and student effort required to successfully achieve a particular competency/module. This may include not only scheduled classes or workplace visits but also the amount of effort required to undertake, evaluate and complete all assessment requirements, including any non-classroom activities.
Pre-requisites and Co-requisites
The following modules (or equivalents) should be preferably completed prior to this module:
• EA 002 Engineering Mathematics A
• EA 003 Engineering Mathematics B
• EA 001 Calculus
The purpose of this module is to provide participants with the skills, knowledge and attitudes required to perform fundamental mathematical procedures and processes for solution of engineering problems, particularly the use of calculus, vector analysis and infinite series. The subject aims to show the relevance of mathematics to engineering and applied sciences. This module, in conjunction with Advanced Engineering Mathematics 2, also facilitates articulation to Degree courses in all streams of Engineering and forms a basis for more specialist branches of mathematics.
National Codes, Titles, Elements and Performance Criteria
National Element Code & Title:
VBH624 Advanced Engineering Mathematics 1
On completion of this module the learner should be able to:
1. Simplify expressions and solve simple problems involving Exponential, Logarithmic, Trigonometric, Inverse Trigonometric, Hyperbolic and Inverse Hyperbolic Functions.
2. Use various types of Series to approximate given functions and hence solve simple problems involving Linear and Quadratic approximations and evaluation of integrals.
3. Apply the principles of Three Dimensional Vector algebra to solve a variety of basic problems in Engineering and Applied Science.
4. Apply the principles of Analytical Geometry and vector analysis to determine the equations of and relationships between straight lines and planes in Three Dimensional Space.
5. Represent data in Graphical Form and use graphs to determine constants and variables, and hence the equations of various functions.
6. Apply the principles of Differential Calculus to solve a variety of practical problems in Engineering and Applied Science.
