A first course in the methods and applications of engineering mathematics. Topics include calculus, linear algebra, and modelling techniques. This Course is designed for engineering students who have done well in NCEA Mathematics with calculus.
A pass in EMTH118 allows entry into EMTH119 and also prepares students for EMTH171 and ENGR102. Topics:Linear equations and matrices; functions, limits and continuity; vector geometry; differentiation; applications of differentiation; integration; and applications of integration, including an introduction to first order differential equations.
This course will provide students with an opportunity to develop the Graduate Attributes specified below:
Critically competent in a core academic discipline of their award
Students know and can critically evaluate and, where applicable, apply this knowledge to topics/issues within their majoring subject.
1) MATH101, or2) NCEA 14 Credits (18 strongly recommended) at level 3 Mathematics (including the standards 'Apply differentiation methods in solving problems (91578)' and 'Apply integration methods in solving problems (91579)'), or3) Cambridge: D at A level or an A at AS level in Mathematics, or4) IB: 4 at HL or 6 at SL in Mathematics, or5) approval of the Head of School based on alternative prior learning.
MATH102, MATH108, MATH199
