Module Title:   Technology Mathematics 2

Module Credit:   10

Module Code:   ENG1022M

Academic Year:   2015/6

Teaching Period:   Semester 2

Module Occurrence:   A

Module Level:   FHEQ Level 4

Module Type:   Standard module

Provider:   Engineering

Related Department/Subject Area:   Engineering: Mathematics and Computing (not in use)

Principal Co-ordinator:   Prof AS Wood

Additional Tutor(s):   Mr T Sutcliffe and Dr A Byrne

Prerequisite(s):   ENG1021M

Corequisite(s):   None

Aims:
To introduce data analysis concepts and skills. To introduce calculus by developing fundamental concepts, skills and selection criteria (by examplar) of simple differentiation and integration. Extension of calculation methods from ENG1021M will be developed.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
Principles, theory and practical calculation skills are developed in formal lectures, and practiced in tutorials & calculator-based classes with continual reflection and oral feedback. Peer-learning is developed through a semester-long team activity. Written classroom tests (to facilitate formative written feedback) will assess both the application of practical skills to the knowledge base of the module and the wider learning outcomes expressed in the descriptor.

Outline Syllabus:
` Block 1: Elementary statistics: data representation, mean, median, standard deviation.
` Block 2: Further algebra: types of curve, reduction of non-linear forms to linear.
` Block 3: Differentiation: applications in technology and commerce, interpretation, derivatives of simple expressions, maxima/minima/inflexions, applications.
` Block 4: Integration: applications in technology and commerce, interpretation, integrals of simple expressions, indefinite versus definite integration, simple rules - substitution. Computation: numerical methods, applications, problem solving.
Further calculator skills (esp. statistics) will be addressed throughout the module. Apposite sessions using these tools to be developed for each subject block.
