Mathematics is at the heart of all science and engineering subjects. Provided the student has passed the CSM1027 and CSM1033 modules in year one, or passed an equivalent recognised external mathematics course. This module takes students further towards the level required to use mathematics as a tool in their other chosen pathways. As well as providing a clear reinforcement of those areas of mathematics that will be required, the module identifies mathematical principles and techniques which can be directly applied in their subject specialism.

Prerequisite modules: CSM1027, CSM1033 or equivalent.

The module aims to extend the work encountered in the first year maths courses CSM1027, CSM1033 or an equivalent Stage 1 (NQF Level 4) mathematics course. The module familiarises students with several level 2 mathematical topics encountered in applied mathematical problems on other modules, assisting them in developing a high level of expertise in problem solving in engineering-related areas.

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

### Module Specific Skills and Knowledge:

- understand and apply Stage 2 (NQF Level 5) mathematical techniques in the areas of numerical methods, curve fitting, differential equations, partial differentiation, probability and transform mathematics.

### Discipline Specific Skills and Knowledge:

- formulate questions in mathematical terms and hence solve problems encountered in engineering-related areas.
- take data from a range of sources and undertake simple modeling tasks with external guidance.

### Personal and Key Transferable / Employment Skills and Knowledge:

- manage learning using resources for the discipline; an ability to develop working relationships of a professional nature within the discipline;
- identify key areas of problems and choose appropriate tools/methods for their resolution in a considered manner.

- calculus review / Maclaurin and Taylor series expansions;
- interpolation;
- curve fitting / regression;
- first order differential equations;
- second order differential equations;
- partial differentiation and optimisation;
- probability distributions;
- reliability;
- Laplace transforms: solutions to differential equations;
- module review.
