Introduction to Engineering Mathematics

This module prepares the student for progression onto the degree level 7 mathematics. It reintroduces the ideas of differentiation from the basics up to partial differentiation and integration from the basics up to integration by parts. It also covers formula manipulation, the factor theorem, partial fractions and complex numbers. The course is designed so that real life situations are used to demonstrate where the techniques are used.
