Module Description: This module involves the study of both first and second order differential equations with a focus on electrical applications. An introduction to linear algebra and probability distributions completes the module.
Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to:
LO1 Solve first and second order differential equations using classical methods.
LO2 Evaluate determinants and perform matrix operations.
LO3 Evaluate probabilities associated with simple and composite events using the basic rules of probability.
LO4 Recognise and solve probability problems associated with selected discrete and continuous probability distributions.
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).
