Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Recall the techniques of differentiation and apply them to problems relevant to the student discipline.
LO2 Apply partial differentiation to analyse small changes, error analysis and rates of change.
LO3 Apply various integration techniques. Calculate the mean and root mean square value of periodic and non periodic functions.
LO4 Apply the Laplace transform method in solving ordinary differential equations
LO5 Use computer software package to explore further calculus problems and integral transforms.
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 MTU module(s) it also allows for learning (in another module or modules) which is equivalent to the learning specified in the named module(s).
