Engineering Mathematics I - ENGG120

This is the first foundation mathematics unit for engineering students. The main concept to be developed is the linearity of differential and matrix operations on functions and vectors. Algebraic techniques involving matrices and determinants and differential operations on functions are then developed to study these problems further. The unit reviews and develops algebra and geometry, trigonometric functions and logarithms. The concept of differentiation as a rate of change is applied to standard functions with the development of the notion of a limit. The unit develops the idea that there are classes of operations of functions and matrices that are linear through the use of engineering laboratory and practical sessions
