Subject Description
The subject consists of two strands, Integral Calculus with applications and Series. The Integral Calculus strand presents a number of analytical and numerical integration techniques plus applications of integration to find areas, volumes of revolution and solve differential equations. The Series strand covers techniques for finding limits, determining the convergence of series and leads into Taylor series. All of these are presented with accompanying examples from various Engineering disciplines.


Subject Learning Outcomes
On successful completion of this subject, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate a basic knowledge of the principles and techniques in Integral Calculus;
2. Apply principles and techniques of Integration to find areas, volumes of revolution and to solve Differential Equations;
3. Demonstrate a basic knowledge of the principles and techniques in dealing with Series;
4. Apply principles and techniques from general Series to the context of Taylor Series;
5. Demonstrate problem solving skills and the ability to analyse the final results;
6. Apply general mathematical principles within an engineering context and think logically and analytically through problems.
