The Queen's University of Belfast FACULTY OF ENGINEERING AND PHYSICAL SCIENCES 105FOE101 Mathematics 1 and 105CIV216 Additional Mathematics 2 Professor W. Sha (w.sha@qub.ac.uk), David Keir Building Room 1002 Overview This course seeks to cover engineering mathematics topics that are deemed to be essential to a professional civil engineer. This is an objective that is shared between this half-module and a second half-module taken in the second semester, however, with the emphasis in this half-module being put on basic algebra, functions and calculus. Learning Outcomes Successful completion of this module will lead to the following learning outcomes: Knowledge and Understanding of Polynomials Other mathematic functions Complex numbers Non-linear equation Differentiation and its applications Integration and its applications Intellectual abilities You will be able to: Manipulate, factor and solve functions and equations containing elementary mathematical functions. Use complex numbers to extend mathematically models. Solve systems of non-linear equations. Differentiate and integrate a range of functions. Apply differentiation and integration to the mathematical modelling of engineering applications. Practical skills You will be able to: Use mathematics to model engineering problems. Think logically. Transferable skills The course will enhance the following skills: Solve engineering problems through mathematical analysis. Solve non-routine problems. Learn independently.
