MATH11160 Technology Mathematics
In this course students apply essential mathematical concepts, processes and techniques to support the development of mathematical descriptions and models for engineering problems. They investigate and apply the properties of linear, quadratic, exponential and logarithmic functions in appropriate settings, use trigonometric functions to solve triangles and describe periodic phenomena and use vector and matrix algrebra to solve problems in an engineering context. Concepts of elementary statistics to organise and analyse data are covered. Students select appropriate mathematical methods appreciating the importance of underlying assumptions and then use them to investigate and solve problems, and interpret the results. Other important elements of this course are the communication of results, concepts and ideas using mathematics as a language, being able to document the solution to problems in a way that demonstrates a clear, logical and precise approach and communicating, working and learning in peer learning teams where appropriate. Distance education (FLEX) students are required to have significant access to a computer and make frequent use of the internet.
