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/attend all 3 lectures.
 watch/attend the weekly workshop.
 attend and actively participate in a one hour tutorial.
 do (and submit) the weekly assignment and workshop assessment
 put in at least 5 additional hours of study.
 watch moodle for notices and supplementary material.
Lectures will be recorded and available on panopto. While SEC students are likely to be participating remotely (over the internet), students based in Hamilton or Tauranga are welcome to attend oncampus lectures, tutorials, and workshops, if they wish to do so and can fit it into their school timetable.
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
NOTE: If covidrelated restrictions (eg lockdowns) mean that inperson assessment is no longer possible we may move everything online. Should this happen we reserve the right to (i) adjust the weightings of each assessment item in whatever fashion seems appropriate, and (ii) change the due dates for any assessment items. How the weights change will depend on what changes we are forced to make and when during the trimester this happens.
Your final grade is determined from your performance in TWO intrimester Tests, a FINAL TEST, and a total tutorial component (including weekly assignments).
All three tests must be supervised by a teacher (or taken at the Hamilton campus at the same time as the MATHS101(HAM) class take the test). During these tests, students shall not use or have access to the internet, phones, laptops, smart watches, etc.
The FINAL TEST, held in the B trimester exam period, is a compulsory item of assessment.
Assignment sheets will be available each week, via moodle.
See the table below for Test dates and assessment weightings.
For identification purposes you must take your student ID Card to each test and show it to the test supervisor. If you do not, your test mark will not be counted until we cannot verify that it was you who sat the test.
The D rule: An UNRESTRICTED pass (i.e. C or better) will only be awarded to students who achieve both a final overall mark of at least 50% and a Final Test mark of at least 40%. There will be no test resits.
The 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.
 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.
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 (9th edition). John Bird. Routledge 2021.
Assignment problems will be set from this text so you will need access to a copy.
The university library has online versions of this edition. In other editions, the explanations/text 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.
 Schaum’s Outlines ‘Calculus’, Ayres & Mendelson, McGrawHill. This is the MATHS101 textbook and has many worked examples.
 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.
 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).
