To provide a basis of knowledge and skills in introductory calculus required for the more advanced option units and to enable students to use techniques in fundamental calculus, statistics and probability for the analysis, modelling and solution of (realistic) engineering problems.

Mathematical principles and calculation strategies will be developed and analysed in lectures and then applied, practised and discussed in tutorial and PC lab sessions. Practical skills are developed in lab sessions where assessment of this material also takes place. The wider Learning Outcomes of the modules are assessed in a final written examination.
