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
 You must watch all the online lectures per week(available from the paper's moodle page)
 You must attend 10 hours of facetoface workshops/lectorials/tutorials per week
 actively participate in the weekly workshop.
 attend and actively participate in tutorials.
 put in at least 10 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 recorded lectures for a week will usually all be available by Monday of that week.
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
Assignments:
There will be Five assignments worth 6% each, a total of 30% of the overall mark.
Your completed assignment should be submitted online through Moodle. Assignments must be submitted by 23:59 on MONDAYS.
Workshops:
There will be 10 workshops. This is an inclass assessment in which group work is encouraged.
Tests:There will also be two tests worth a total of 50% of the overall mark.
A FINAL overall unrestricted pass (ie.C or better) in this paper will only be awarded to students who achieve BOTH a FINAL TEST mark of at least 40% AND a FINAL OVERALL mark of at least 50%.
A restricted pass (RP) will NOT be accepted as a prerequisite for entry into any further Mathematics papers.
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
Assignments and readings will be set from this textbook so you will need to purchase a copy.
Recommended Readings
You may like to look at alternative presentations of the same material.

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:

Online Support
The Moodle page for this paper is the main forum for notices and information about the course. Assignments are posted on Moodle. The gradebook for this paper can also be accessed through Moodle. It is your responsibility to check your marks are correctly entered.
Lectures will be available online (panopto recordings). These can be accessed via the Moodle page.
Workload
There are 10 'contact' hours each week consisting of 3 (online) lectures, 1 workshop and 1 lectorial (lecturetutorial). Also students should spend an additional 10 hours per week in study, including doing the assignments and reading the text. Additional time should be spent in preparation during study week and for tests. Altogether students should expect to commit 300 hours across the term for this paper. Students who are not well prepared may need more time.
