ENM1500 Introductory Engineering Mathematics
Queensland Senior Secondary School Studies Maths A or equivalent assumed. Students are advised to undertake an online pretest on assumed knowledge prior commencing the course. This pretest will advise students the areas which need to be revised to ensure satisfactory progression in the course. The results of the pretest may include recommendations for: further work (if required), or an alternative study plan, such as the Tertiary Preparation Program (Mathematics Level B course), to be completed prior to undertaking ENM1500. This course replaces ENG1500. Students cannot enrol in ENM1500 if they have successfully completed, or are currently enrolled in MAT1000, MAT1001 or ENG1500.
This course integrates mathematical concepts to provide students with an introduction to the mathematical fundamentals required for engineering and surveying. Topics included are: basic algebra, functions and graphing, exponential, logarithmic and trigonometric functions, geometry, vectors in two dimensional space, matrices and an introduction to differentiation and integration.
