### Aims and objectives

This unit will be offered from 2018 and will be known as Maths 3A and will replace MTH20005, MTH20006, MTH20007.

Please Note: Students coming into second year Engineering in 2017 will need to complete one of the following Engineering Maths 3 units in Semester 1 2017

MTH20005 - Engineering Maths 3B, for Electrical and Telecoms students
MTH20006 - Engineering Maths 3C, for Civil Students
MTH20007 - Engineering Maths 3A, for Mechanical and Robotics Students

This unit of study aims to provide students with mathematical knowledge and skills needed to support their concurrent and subsequent engineering and science studies.

Unit Learning Outcomes (ULO)

Students who successfully complete this unit will be able to:

1. Calculate the eigenvalues and eigenvectors of 2x2 and 3x3 matrices (K2, S1).
2. Interpret the quadratic form and find its canonical form (K2, S1).
3. Execute numerical solutions of initial and boundary value problems (K2, S1).
4. Use finite difference methods to obtain numerical solutions of selected partial differential equations (K2, S1).
5. Use Matlab to enhance learning of the above topics (S1).
6. Apply appropriately probability concepts including unconditional and conditional probability, probability distributions, population measures of location and dispersion to analyse data; use concepts in correlation and regression, chi-square test to analyse relationships in bivariate data (K2, S1).
7. Apply the basic concepts of statistical inference including interval estimation, sample size and hypothesis testing in various contexts (K2, S1).
