Full Title:  Mathematics 2 

Field of Study:  Mechanics and metal work

Module Author:  Ciaran O Sullivan 

Module Description:  The aim of Mathematics 2 is to enable the student to master a broad range of standard mathematical techniques in linear algebra, analysis and calculus to a high level of proficiency. This proficiency is required to support engineering subjects and forms the basis for further mathematical study in year 2. 

Learning Outcomes 
On successful completion of this module the learner will be able to: 
LO1 
Write down geometric transformations as matrices and use matrices to implement geometric transformations. 
LO2 
Use matrix techniques to describe, solve and interpret the solution to systems of linear equations of the type occurring in engineering problems. 
LO3 
Use vectors to describe and solve geometric problems in 3D. 
LO4 
Recognise different engineering signal types such as even, odd, monotonic, convex, concave, piecewise ( constant and linear) and rational functions. 
LO5 
Apply knowledge of engineering functions to solve models (growth and decay models). 
LO6 
Extend the differential calculus to parametrically defined functions. 
LO7 
Apply differential calculus to analyse the graph of a function and to solve problems in mechanics and other engineering contexts. 
LO8 
Use the definition of integration to integrate an exact function. 
LO9 
Integrate the basic monomials, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions of the type occurring in engineering and use linearity to integrate sums of such. 
LO10 
Use Simpsonâ€™s and the Trapezoid rules to evaluate definite integrals numerically, with an estimate of the error. 
LO11 
Apply integration to find a variety of areas and volumes and to solve problems in mechanics and other engineering contexts. 
LO12 
Demonstrate a sound knowledge of the vocabulary and syntax of a modern programming language. 
LO13 
Perform programming basics such as the assembling of programmes/scripts which correctly use variable assignment, comments and indentation and are able to debug and test such programmes. 
LO14 
Use programming control structures (selection structures and repetition)
