Title:Mathematics for Science 3.1
Long Title:Mathematics for Science 3.1
Module Code:MATH7010
 
Duration:1 Semester
Credits: 5
NFQ Level:Intermediate
Field of Study: Mathematics
Valid From: Semester 1 - 2019/20 ( September 2019 )
Module Delivered in 1 programme(s)
Module Coordinator: David Goulding
Module Author: David Goulding
Module Description: This module includes more advanced Laplace transforms to include study of unit step, Dirac function and periodic functions. The study of numerical analysis and Fourier series make up the rest of the module.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Use the Laplace transform method to solve first-order and second-order linear differential equations subject to unit step, impulsive and periodic inputs.
LO2 Compute the trigonometric form of the Fourier series of functions including odd and even functions.
LO3 Fit lines to experimental data using interpolation and regression 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 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).

Incompatible Modules
These are modules which have learning outcomes that are too similar to the learning outcomes of this module. You may not earn additional credit for the same learning and therefore you may not enrol in this module if you have successfully completed any modules in the incompatible list.
