These papers extend the one–variable calculus from MATHS101 Introduction to Calculus to the calculus of functions of more than one variable. Many of the topics covered provide a synthesis of calculus and geometry (from MATHS102). The mathematics studied is of fundamental and equal importance to engineers and non-engineers. Therefore, MATHS201 and ENGEN201 are substantially the same, and share the same classroom during the first 8 weeks. During the last 4 weeks, the ENGEN201 stream is joined by MATHS203 class, and continues with Fourier series, PDEs, and systems of ODEs (used to be taught in ENGG284).
Students who successfully complete the course should be able to:
First 8 weeks:
1. Compute the tangent line, arc length and work integrals over a parametrized curve.
2. Calculate the gradient vector of a multivariable function, and apply the chain rule.
3. Calculate the Taylor expansion of a multivariable function.
4. Solve unconstrained and equality constrained optimization problems in up to three variables.
5. Compute multivariable integrals (in Cartesian and polar coordinates).
6. Use integration to compute volumes and moments of solid bodies.Linked to the following assessments:
Last 4 weeks:
7. Compute Fourier series.
8. Solve PDEs by the method of separation of variables.
9. Solve systems of ODEs.Linked to the following assessments:
The internal assessment:final examination ratio is 1:1.
The internal assessment will consist of five assignments (worth 2% each) and two tests (worth 20% each).
Assignments should be submitted via the slot under the G.3.19 Mathematics Reception counter.
Assignment due dates:
Assignment 1: Wednesday 25 July 3pm
Assignment 2: Wednesday 8 August 3pm
Assignment 3: Wednesday 5 September 3pm
Assignment 4: Wednesday 19 September 3pm
Assignment 5: Wednesday 3 October 3pm
Late assignments will not be accepted (any time after 3pm is considered late).
Tests will be held as follows:
Tuesday 4 September 6:15-8:00pm in PWC, ELT.G.01 and MSB.1.01
Tuesday 9 October 6:15-8:00pm in PWC, ELT.G.01 and MSB.1.05
An unrestricted pass will be awarded only to students who achieve both a final mark of at least 50% and an examination mark of at least 40%.
The time, date and place of the 3-hour final examination will be arranged by the University.
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50. There is no final exam. The final exam makes up 50% of the overall mark.
The internal assessment/exam ratio (as stated in the University Calendar) is 50:50 or 0:0, whichever is more favourable for the student. The final exam makes up either 50% or 0% of the overall mark.
Error: Assessment components must add up to 100%
At least one Assessment Component needs to be entered
