'Recognizing the need is the primary condition for design.'
In this unit, you will investigate how to apply differential and integral calculus methods to solve engineering problems.
You will learn about the rules and procedures of calculus mathematics to obtain solutions to a variety of engineering problems.
You will solve a complex problem from your specialist area of study and perhaps from a local organisation by breaking it down into a series of linked manageable steps.
As an engineer you need to understand and develop the skills required to solve problems using calculus and other mathematical procedures.
It will also help prepare you for an apprenticeship or for employment in a range of engineering disciplines as a technician, and will help you work with professional engineers as part of a team working on cutting-edge products and systems.
Make sure that you understand the questions and how to work them out before accessing the solutions.
It is essential that you can do these calculations independently only refering to the solutions to check your working out.
You will be asked questions about your working out by your tutor and will have to explain the methods in a learner question and answer log.
