This is a core unit in a stream that will allow students to undertake a qualification to become a registered teacher.
|1.||Review, analyse, consolidate and synthesise knowledge to identify a modelling process and provide solutions to complex problems with intellectual independence;|
|2.||Adapt and use various ordinary differential equations, in the continuous case and interpolation methods, in the discrete case, for modelling common situations;|
|3.||Develop simple models to solve real life problems with intellectual independence;|
|4.||Solve differential equations that play an essential role in continuous models such as the velocity field of fluid in pipe flows, temperatures and stresses in a solid, and electric field that applies continuously over the entire model due to a point charge; and|
|5.||Articulate a clear and coherent exposition of knowledge and ideas on continuous and discrete mathematical modelling to a variety of audiences.|
|Assignment||Assignment #1 consisting of Mathematical problems.||25%|
