This unit aims to provide students with the mathematical knowledge and skills that are needed to support their concurrent and subsequent engineering studies. The unit includes the following topics: introduction to classical geometry, its logic and methods; analytical geometry including vectors and linear spaces; maps, matrices and matrix algebra; linear systems and Gauss method; and introduction to complex numbers. The unit provides students with a sound knowledge of mathematical principles and ideas in software engineering. It also provides the students with the mathematical skills for every day engineering practice. In addition, the unit promotes and strengthens important generic skills, such as communication, analysis and inquiry, problem solving, independent and group working, and professionalism and social responsibility.

Learning Outcomes

On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

1. Demonstrate an understanding of the basic concepts of classical and analytical geometry, linear algebra and number theory;

2. Compute in classical and analytical geometry and linear algebra using pen and paper in simple situations, and computers in some more complicated ones;

3. Recognise the power of mathematical modelling and analysis;

4. Analyse and solve contemporary problems of both theoretical and practical importance.
