MATHEMATICS 1
2012-2013 - REA1141 - 10 ECTS

Expected learning outcomes

The students will learn mathematical tools and methods for engineering problem solving, and acquire a foundation for further study in mathematics and engineering. The course emphasizes manual computation and basic concepts.

Knowledge

  • understand the relevance of mathematics in engineering problem solving.
  • able to identify applications of mathematics in engineering subjects.
  • have an appropriate toolbox with mathematical symbols and formulas
  • know different types of mathematical computer programs

The subject shall give knowledge in the areas of differentiation, integration, differential equation and complex numbers.

Skills

  • do computations with symbols and formulas
  • apply differentiation and integration on simple practical problems
  • modelling and solving of simple differential equations
  • able to do mathematical thinking and reasoning

The skills are  developed by applications to the knowledge areas

Grading Scale

Alphabetical Scale, A(best) – F (fail)

External/internal examiner

Sensureres av intern sensor (emnelærer).
Ekstern sensor benyttes periodisk (hvert 3-4 år) til retting og til utarbeiding av eksamensoppgaver. Neste gang: 2014.

Re-sit examination

Det arrangeres egen kontinuasjonseksamen for den skriftlige eksamenen.
Mappekarakteren kan ikke kontinueres, men må tas i sin helhet ved neste ordinære avvikling av emnet.
Hvis bare én av delene (mappe eller eksamen) er bestått, må kun den delen som ikke er bestått taes opp igjen.

Examination support

Utdelt formelsamling.
