DESCRIPTION - summary of the module content
Mathematics is at the heart of all science and engineering subjects. Provided the student has at least a good grade at GCSE mathematics and they have taken the CSM1027 module or equivalent in term one, this module takes students of all levels of experience or confidence in mathematics and brings them up to a level required to use mathematics as a tool in their other chosen pathways and modules. As well as providing a clear reinforcement of those areas of mathematics that will be required, the module has in place a number of levels of support for students who feel they need to address perceived weakness in the subject.
The module is suitable for non-specialist students. The module is recommended for interdisciplinary pathways. Prerequisite module: CSM1027 or equivalent.
AIMS - intentions of the module

The module aims to extend the work encountered in CSM1027 and covers a range of engineering mathematics topics. The module includes an introduction to the software package MATLAB. 

 

INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILOs) (see assessment section below for how ILOs will be assessed)

On successful completion of this module, you should be able to:

Module Specific Skills and Knowledge:

  1. use level 1 mathematical skills in matrices, complex numbers, vectors, calculus and statistics, numerical and iteration techniques, ensuring that more advanced topics may be studied with confidence in later modules.

Discipline Specific Skills and Knowledge:

  1. formulate in mathematical and statistical terms simple  problems  encountered in geo-scientific and energy related areas
  2. take data from a range of sources and undertake simple modeling tasks with external guidance.

Personal and Key Transferable/ Employment Skills and Knowledge:

  1. apply given tools/methods accurately and appropriately to a well defined problem and further appreciate the complexity of mathematical issues in the degree discipline;
  2. present mathematical work, and communicate conclusions to a wide audience in a clear and logical way;
  3. demonstrate familiarity with the software package MathCad to support the study and communication of mathematics.

RE-ASSESSMENT NOTES

If a module is normally assessed entirely by coursework, all referred/deferred assessments will normally be by assignment.

If a module is normally assessed by examination or examination plus coursework, referred and deferred assessment will normally be by examination.

For referrals, only the examination will count, a mark of 40% being awarded if the examination is passed.

For deferrals, candidates will be awarded the higher of the deferred examination mark or the deferred examination mark combined with the original coursework mark.
