Module content and teaching

Principal aims

To present, in context, and provide skills in the application of fundamental Mathematics concepts that underpin all of Engineering. To encourage the development of problem solving as required in other Year 1 modules and in order that more advanced material can be tackled in modules taught in later years.

Principal learning outcomes

By the end of the module the student should be able to: • Recognise and be able to apply mathematical tools and techniques to solve engineering based problems. • Recognise and be able to apply probabilistic and statistical tools and techniques to solve engineering based problems. • Make appropriate assumptions to simplify and thus model real-life Engineering problems. • Analyse models using basic mathematical techniques including statistical and numerical techniques.

Timetabled teaching activities

20 hours of lectures, 2 hours of revision lectures, 20 hours of tutorials, 2 hours of computer-based formative test and 20 hours of extra support for foundation maths. Total of 44 hours or up to 64 hours with additional maths support.

Other essential notes

Students may be referred for additional support of up to 20 hours by their tutors, and advice and feedback hours, additional seminars, online resources and exercises will be provided as appropriate. Other students entering degree courses without a higher Maths qualification will be tested at the start of the year in order to determine whether they require extra support.
