About this Unit
This unit is the first of two mathematics units to be completed by all students enrolled in an engineering degree during their first year of study. The content covers a number of topics that underpin the later-stage engineering mathematics units. The subject matter includes: differential and integral calculus of a single variable, complex numbers, aspects of matrix algebra, vectors, and some elementary statistics and probability theory. The aim of this unit is to introduce a number of key mathematical concepts needed in the study of Engineering, and to provide a solid foundation for the follow-on unit Mathematics for Engineers 2.
