Students entering tertiary studies in engineering and surveying require mathematical skills in a wide range of areas and experience in applying these skills to problem solving in engineering contexts. In particular, the techniques of calculus, matrices, and vectors are fundamental for modelling and analysis in a wide range of applications. This course further develops the skills and understanding of the mathematical concepts which underpin the investigative tools used in engineering and surveying. This course provides opportunity for students to extend their mastery of these topics and explore applications in engineering and surveying.
This course builds on the Queensland Mathematics B content and further develops algebra, function, trigonometric, exponential, logarithm and graphing competencies, and introduces matrices, vectors and calculus. Emphasis is placed on developing strong skills in these areas within an engineering context and on exploring and applying these skills to a range of engineering and surveying applications.
