Not too easy. Not too difficult.
Course Overview:
The course gives the students a sound knowledge of calculus giving them a reasonable background of Three-dimensional Geometry, which is necessary to understand calculus. After the course, students will be able to use mathematics as a strong tool to understand and develop the practical problems which they come across in Engineering/Technology.
Course highlights:
After pre-calculus review, the course introduces functions of several variables, their limits and continuity and partial differentiation. Double and triple integration are included with applications to find areas and volumes. First order and higher order differential equations are included so that the students feel comfortable in making mathematical models of physical systems. Fourier Series are included to make them capable of tackling periodic signals.
Hours per week:
3-5 hours
Advice for students:
Studying calculus is important because it provides a basis for understanding mathematical concepts and also helps a person develop practical scientific and engineering sense and problem-solving skills, according to Understanding Calculus.
