Unit Description and General Aims
This unit is intended at expanding the scope of engineering mathematics learning further, by introducing the student to the principles and applications of differential and integral calculus. The derivative and integration rules and techniques are brought out clearly, so as to enable the student to solve simple as well as complex engineering problems, using calculus. This is followed by a detailed overview of the concepts related to analytical geometry, probability and statistics and sets, so that the student will be able to use these mathematical techniques to effectively deal with problems in engineering application areas.
