# ENGINEERING MATHEMATICS III - 2018/9

Module code: EEE2035

Module Overview

Expected prior learning: Mathematical experience equivalent to Year 1 of EE Programmes.

Module purpose: This module builds on the fundamental tools and concepts introduced in the Mathematics modules in Year 1 and applies them to further engineering examples. A broad range of mathematics topics is covered, and their applications are always borne in mind.

Assessment pattern

Assessment type | Unit of assessment | Weighting |
---|---|---|

Coursework | PROBLEM SHEETS | 20 |

Examination | 2 HOUR CLOSED BOOK EXAMINATION | 80 |

Alternative Assessment

Not applicable: students failing a unit of assessment resit the assessment in its original format.

Assessment Strategy

The assessment strategy for this module is designed to provide students with the opportunity to demonstrate the learning outcomes. The written examination will assess the knowledge and assimilation of mathematical terminology, notation, concepts and techniques, as well as the ability to work out solutions to previously unseen problems under time-constrained conditions. The assignments give the students a chance to practise the required techniques shortly after they have been taught and in problems of a similar level to those that they will meet in the exam.

Thus, the summative assessment for this module consists of the following.

· 2-hour, closed-book written examination.

· Two take-home problem sheets, submitted as coursework.

Formative assessment and feedback

For the module, students will receive formative assessment/feedback in the following ways.

· During lectures, by question and answer sessions

· During office hour meetings with students

· By means of unassessed tutorial problems in the notes (with answers/model solutions)

· Via assessed coursework

Any deadlines given here are indicative. For confirmation of exact dates and times, please check the Departmental assessment calendar issued to you.

Module aims

- Students will be able to demonstrate the application of relevant mathematics underpinning telecommunications, linear systems, digital signal processing, networks and laboratories, as well as substantial parts of many final year modules.

Overall student workload

Independent Study Hours: 112

Lecture Hours: 33

Methods of Teaching / Learning

The learning and teaching strategy is designed to achieve the following aims:

Student familiarity with the basic concepts, notations and techniques used in mathematics as it is applied to engineering, as taught in Mathematics I and II.

Facility with the fundamental tools of applied mathematics that will support many other courses in the current and next Level of Electronic Engineering degree programmes.

Learning and teaching methods include the following:

Lectures (3 hours per week for 11 weeks).

Class discussion in lectures.

One-to-one sessions with lecturer during office hours.

One hour tutorial every two weeks in Drop-in Centre.

Indicated Lecture Hours (which may also include seminars, tutorials, workshops and other contact time) are approximate and may include in-class tests where one or more of these are an assessment on the module. In-class tests are scheduled/organised separately to taught content and will be published on to student personal timetables, where they apply to taken modules, as soon as they are finalised by central administration. This will usually be after the initial publication of the teaching timetable for the relevant semester.
