### Objectives

On completion of this module, students will be able to:
1. Review of differentiation and integration
2. Manipulate complex numbers
3. Solve ordinary differential equations, including first and second order
4. Taylor series
5. Introduction to partial derivatives

Skills outcomes
The module places considerable emphasis on:
- recognising and using subject-specific theories, paradigms, concepts and principles;
- applying knowledge and understanding to address familiar and unfamiliar problems;
- solving numerical problems using computer and non-computer based techniques;
- developing the skills necessary for self-managed and lifelong learning (eg working independently, time management and organisation skills).

The module places moderate emphasis on:
- analysing, synthesising and summarising information critically, including prior research;
- preparing, processing, interpreting and presenting data, using appropriate qualitative and quantitative techniques and packages;
- using the Internet critically as a means of communication and a source of information;
- identifying and working towards targets for personal, academic and career development.

The module places some emphasis on:
- collecting and integrating several lines of evidence to formulate and test hypotheses;
- receiving and responding to a variety of information sources (eg textual numerical, verbal, graphical);
- developing an adaptable and flexible approach to study and work.

### Opportunities for Formative Feedback

- Example sheets with model solutions are provided at the start of each topic. Students study these as part of the learning process.
- Further examples sheets (not assessed) are provided for students to work on independently.
- Assistance with these may be given at practical classes but solutions are only provided after the topic is completed.
