Module Description: This module builds on the learner's previous knowledge and understanding of differential and integral calculus. New techniques and applications of differentiation and integration are included. The module also provides an introduction to statistics.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Use differentiation to solve optimisation problems and related rates of change problems.
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 Describe and analyse descriptive statistics of samples and populations using graphical and analytical 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).

Indicative Content
Differential Calculus
Review of the fundamental rules of differentiation to include product, quotient and chain rules. Differentiation of polynomial, rational, exponential, logarithmic, trigonometric, hyperbolic and inverse functions. The second derivative test and its use in optimisation problems. Application of the Newton Raphson method. Calculation of related rates of change. Implicit differentiation. Introduction to partial differentiation to include first and second order partial derivatives. Applications to small changes, error analysis and rates of change.
Integral Calculus
Review of the fundamental techniques of anti-differentiation and integration to include table look-up and the method of substitution. Integration techniques to include integration by parts and partial fractions. Applications of definite integral to include the calculation of the mean and root mean square (rms) of periodic and non periodic functions.
Introduction to Statistics
Graphical display of statistical data including histograms, ogive and boxplots. Calculation of measures of location and dispersion such at the mean, median, mode range and standard deviation.
