A continuation of EMTH118. Topics covered include methods and Engineering applications of calculus, differential equations, and linear algebra, along with an introduction to probability. This course is a prerequisite for many courses in engineering mathematics and other subjects at 200 level.
Due to the condensed nature of this course students are expected to attend every lecture AND every tutorial, at the times specified, on the following days:Lecture Times: Tue 9 - 10.30; Wed 11 - 12.30; Thu 12 - 1:30; Fri 9 - 10.30Tutorial Times: Tue 11 - 12; Wed 1 - 2; Thu 2 - 3; Fri 11 – 12The official start date for the course is 27th November 2017. In the first week we will be posting self-study material and revision units in Learn. You should study these at home to prepare for the start of on-campus lectures the following week. Tutorials follow every lecture, that is, each day there will be a tutorial with exercises to practise the material covered in that day's lecture. Lectures resume after the Christmas break in the week starting 1st January.You must be able to make a commitment to being on-campus from 5th December to 20th December and 4th January to 2nd February (inclusive), plus the exam on 7th February, before enrolling in this course.EMTH119 consolidates concepts from EMTH118 and introduces more advanced ideas in calculus and linear algebra. It includes applications of this mathematics to applied and engineering problems.It also incorporates some study of probability. It is a prerequisite for many courses in engineering mathematics and other subjects at the 200-level.Topics: Differential equations. First-order ordinary differential equations with applications. Second-order ordinary differential equations with applications.Sequences and mathematical induction. Applications of differentiation to approximation. Approximation by Taylor polynomials. Landau’s notation and order of magnitude.Matrices and determinants. Probability. Sets and probability. Discrete random variables. Continuous random variables. Expectation, mean, and variance.Techniques and applications of integration. Integration of rational functions.Arc length. Improper integrals. Vector Geometry Projections. Parallel and intersecting planes. Intersection and distance problems.
