This unit enables students to demonstrate the fundamental knowledge of mathematical skills that apply in the built environment. Students will become familiar with mathematical operations associated with basic algebra, matrix algebra, geometry, trigonometry, functions and their graphs, exponential and logarithmic functions and basic statistics.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Identify typical examples of problems encountered in Civil Engineering;
2. Choose and explain appropriate solutions; and
3. Use mathematical formulae to answer built environment and civil engineering problems.
5 hours per week, consisting of 1 hour lecture, 2 hour tutorial and 2 hour peer assisted tutorial support.
High school Maths A, Maths B highly desirable.
