Objectives

On completion of this module, students will be able to:
1. determine the partial derivatives and extrema of a function
2. apply the grad operator (div, grad, curl)
3. solve partial differential equations
4. Fourier analysis
5. introduction to multi-dimensional integration.

Skills outcomes
The module places considerable emphasis on:
- developing the skills necessary for self-managed and lifelong learning (eg working independently, time management and organisation skills);
- 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.
