Module Description: This module builds on the learner's previous knowledge and understanding of differential and integral calculus. New techniques and applications of differentiation are included. The learner is also introduced to the theory and applications of vectors and matrices.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Differentiate parametrically, implicitly, partially and solve related rates of change problems.
LO2 Apply vector algebra methods to problems involving forces and moments of forces.
LO3 Integrate by parts and by inverse trigonometric substitution; and apply integration methods to various applied problems.
LO4 Solve and analyse simultaneous equations using matrix algebra methods.
Pre-requisite learning
Module Recommendations
This is prior learning (or a practical skill) that is strongly recommended before enrolment in this module. You may enrol in this module if you have not acquired the recommended learning but you will have considerable difficulty in passing (i.e. achieving the learning outcomes of) the module. While the prior learning is expressed as named CIT module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
