About this Unit
From 2016 this unit will be replaced by 301077 Mathematics for Industrial Design. This unit is designed to assist in the transition from secondary school mathematics to university first year level mathematics, and gradually bring students to the required standard. It provides a sound foundation in basic mathematical tools in the areas of algebra, trigonometry, probability and calculus, which are particularly relevant to first year mathematics and statistics core subjects. The algebra section revises basic arithmetic manipulation before introducing functions, polynomial, logarithmic and exponential functions, solving equations, matrix manipulation and applications. The probability section covers basic concepts of probability. The trigonometry section introduces the concept of angles, trigonometric functions and their fundamental identities. The calculus section incldes limits, differentiation, maximum and minimum values, graphing and integration. These mathematical methods and simple concepts are illustrated using practical examples derived from many different areas relevant to students.
