Paper Description
The paper covers.
 Functions and trigonometric equations
 More calculus, particularly integration, with applications to engineering problems.
 An introduction to statistics
Paper Structure
The paper is divided into five sections each taking a week. Each section (other than the first) starts on a Tuesday and finishes on the following Monday with an online test. Initially all contact will be via Zoom via the link on Moodle. Moodle sessions will run from 1012 on every day.
On the four days which are not Monday there will be in class assessment on zoom. We will be using breakout rooms and working on problems in small groups. These problems will need to be signed off each day.
Learning Outcomes
Students who successfully complete the paper should be able to:
Assessment
The paper is divided into five sections each taking a week.
Each week there is a test worth 10% and some problems worth 10%.
The problems will consist of in class assessment of some sort. There will be some assessment attached to every class. A variety of assessment types will be used. We may use Moodle's quiz feature, ask you to work in small groups to answer a question, or ask you submit a written answer to a very short assignment. The workload is not intended to be heavy, but you we expect you to participate and do some work every day.
There is no final examination for this paper.
The five tests are items of compulsory assessment. A clear pass in this paper requires that in the five tests you achieve an average score of at least 40%.
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
Higher Engineering Mathematics, John Bird, 8th Edition, Routledge
If the 8th edition cannot be found, the 9th edition is acceptable.
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.
Workload
There are 10 'contact' hours each week for a total of 52 contact hours. Students are also expected to spend considerable additional time studying. This is an intensive paper taught over a short time period and the workload is probably not compatible with full time employment. In particular you are expected to be available from 1012 every day of the week. If you cannot make that commitment you should not be enrolled in this paper.
