 For extensions starting with 4: dial +64 7 838 extension.
 For extensions starting with 5: dial +64 7 858 extension.
 For extensions starting with 9: dial +64 7 837 extension.
 For extensions starting with 3: dial +64 7 2620 + the last 3 digits of the extension e.g. 3123 = +64 7 262 0123.
Paper Description
The paper covers.
 Functions and trigonometric equations
 More calculus, particularly integration, with applications to engineering problems.
 An introduction to statistics
Paper Structure
Each week students should
 watch and actively participate in all 3 online lectures (available from the paper's moodle page).
 actively participate in the weekly workshop.
 attend and actively participate in a one hour tutorial.
 put in at least 5 additional hours of study.
If you are offcampus for the trimester, zoom (or similar) access to a weekly tutorial and the weekly workshop will be available.
Contact the lecturer to arrange this.
The 3 recorded lectures for a week will usually all be available by Monday 1pm of that week. In all situations a recorded lecture will be available by lecture time shown in the timetable [Tue 4pm, Wed 12pm, Fri 2pm].
Note the actively participate. This is key for your success in this paper. Engineering maths is not a spectator sportyou learn by doing.
Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete the paper should be able to:
Assessment
The assessment items are listed here. For the percentage contributions of these to the final mark, see the table a little further down.
TWO Tests, each worth the same amount. See table below for dates. Please ensure you are available for these dates and times. Alternative dates/times will not be available.
Tests will almost certainly be online, unless there is a change to UoW requirements for the B trimester.
If a test is missed due to illness or other good reason, the lecturer must be notified as soon as practicable. Appropriate documentation (for example a medical certificate issued by a doctor) must be supplied. Should the reason be accepted an estimated grade for the missed work will be used. The estimated grade will be based on results in other assessments including the final test and on the distribution of grades in the missed assessment. Documents submitted more than 3 days after the test date will not usually be accepted.
There will be NO test resits.
A workshop grade.
 There will be 10 workshops and the best 8 will be counted. This is an inclass assessment in which group work is encouraged.
 The best (n2) out of n policy is intended to allow students to miss one or two workshops due to illness or other good reason without requiring us to process medical certificates. Where serious illness may cause a more prolonged absence, please consult the lecturer.
A tutorial/assignment component.
 There will be 10 tutorial based assignments and the best 8 marks will be counted. Assignments should be your own work and copying may lead to referral to the university disciplinary committee.
 The best n2 out of n policy is intended to allow students to miss one or two assignments due to illness or other good reason without requiring us to process medical certificates. Where serious illness may cause a more prolonged absence, please consult the lecturer.
A FINAL TEST. This is a compulsory item of assessment.
 This will be held in what was formerly the exam period for B trimester (Oct 26  Nov 6).
 This will almost certainly be online, unless there is a change to UoW requirements for the B trimester.
In order to pass this paper with an unrestricted grade (Grade C or better) you must get an overall total of 50% or greater, and ALSO at least 40% in the final test.
Assessment Components
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 100:0. There is no final exam.
Required and Recommended Readings
Required Readings
Engineering Mathematics, K. A. Stroud (with Dexter J. Booth), 7th Edition, Industrial Press, Inc.
Assignment problems will be set from this text.
Recommended Readings
You may like to look at alternative presentations of the same material.
 Schaum’s Outlines ‘Calculus’, Ayres & Mendelson, McGrawHill.
 "Engineering Mathematics:, Kreyszig, etc
 "Modern Engineering Mathematics", Glyn James, Pearson (2015 version available as an ebook via the library).
Other Resources
A standard scientific calculator is needed for tests. Graphing and CAS calculators are not permitted.
Octave is a free (GPL ) implementation of MATLAB which we encourage students to download and play with. Matlab is specifically designed to carry out matrix calculations. You can search for it online. Links for download will also appear on Moodle.
Microsoft Excel may be used to perform tasks in the statistics part of the course. Microsoft Office 365 is available and free to all enrolled University of Waikato students. Instructions to download can be found through the following link:
