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
 attend and actively participate in all 3 lectures.
 attend and actively participate in the weekly workshop.
 attend and actively participate in a one hour tutorial.
 put in at least 5 additional hours of study.
 watch moodle for notices and supplementary material.
Lectures will be recorded and available on panopto. Our recommendation is to use the recordings in addition to attending the lectures in person.
Note the actively participate. This is key for your success in this paper. Engineering maths is not a spectator sportyou learn by doing.
If covid alert levels change some of these activities may only be available online. Details will be provided as needed.
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.
See table below for dates. Please ensure you are available for these dates and times. Alternative dates/times will not be available. Tests will be held oncampus (unless covid alert levels do not allow this).
If Covid alert levels change, a test may be given online and the test dates may be changed from those listed in the table below.
There will be NO test resits.
A workshop grade.
 There will be 12 workshops with quizzes to be completed at each. The best 10 will be counted. This is an inclass assessment in which working in pairs is encouraged.
A tutorial/assignment component.
 There will be 11 assignments and the best 9 marks will be counted. Assignments should be your own work and copying may lead to a referral to the university disciplinary committee. Essentially, there is an assignment to hand in every week.
 Each weekly assignment sheet will also include tutorial problems. There is no need to hand these in, although you are encouraged to do all of these. Practicing problem solving will improve your chances of doing well in this paper.
A FINAL EXAM, held in the B trimester exam period. This is a compulsory item of assessment.
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 exam (the D rule).
Assessment Components
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.
Required and Recommended Readings
Required Readings
HIgher Engineering Mathematics (8th edition). John Bird. Routledge 2017.
Assignment problems will be set from this text so you will need access to a copy.
The university library has online versions of other editions. The explanations in these will be fine to use, but don't assume the problem numbers will match.
NOTE: Using/buying secondhand copies of text books is a fine idea.
Recommended Readings
You may like to look at alternative presentations of the same material.
 Engineering Mathematics, K. A. Stroud (with Dexter J. Booth), 7th Edition, Industrial Press, Inc. This was used in previous year. It is a good book for working through, but more difficult to dip into.
 Schaum’s Outlines ‘Calculus’, Ayres & Mendelson, McGrawHill. This is the MATHS101 textbook and has many worked examples
 Engineering Mathematics, Kreyszig, etc
 Modern Engineering Mathematics, Glyn James, Pearson (2015 version available as an ebook via the library).
Other Resources
The only type of calculator you may use in the tests or the exam is a CASIO 82 variant (as used in ENGEN101). The CASIO 82 Au Plus II is a recent member in this series of calculators. If you bring a graphing or CAS calculator to a test or the exam you will not be permitted to use it.
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 5 'contact' hours each week consisting of 3 lectures, 1 workshop and 1 tutorial. Students should attend these AND spend an additional 5 hours per week in study, including doing the assignments and reading the textbook.
Additional time should be spent in preparation during study week and for tests. Altogether students should expect to commit 150 hours across the trimester for this paper. Students who are not well prepared may need more time.
Doing all the assignments questions AND all the tutorial questions is strongly recommended. Doing this is likely to substantially improve your understanding (and grade).
