Amcanion cyffredinol

1) To introduce students from a range of backgrounds to the mathematical knowledge and aptitude that they will be expected to deploy and demonstrate in their study at undergraduate level 2) To ensure that students understand and can use appropriate mathematical language and understand mathematical notation, conventions and units 3) To introduce the relationships between forces, linear motion and energy and the conditions for the static equilibrium of a body 4) To prepare students for the deployment of mathematical applications in the fields of engineering and computer science

Cynnwys cwrs

This module provides the appropriate foundation in mathematical skills to enable students to be successful as they proceed to their planned undergraduate studies in engineering or computer science. Many students will come from educational systems where there has been a strong emphasis placed on mathematics but it cannot be assumed that this will apply more generally. It is important therefore that the module ensures the strong level of mathematics required to cope with level 4 and beyond of their engineering or computer science first degree programme. The main topics covered are: Vectors: Introduction; Cartesian components and position vectors Forces and Equilibrium: Mathematical models; the action of forces; resultant forces; resolution into components; a particle in equilibrium Relative Motion: Velocity and acceleration as vectors; Relative velocity; relative displacement Newton’s Laws of Motion: Newton’s Laws; Applications; Connected particles; Related accelerations Friction – Hooke’s Law; The Law of friction; Motion on a rough surface; Equilibrium on a rough surface; Angle of friction; Hooke’s Law Work, Energy and Power: Work and kinetic energy; Conservation of mechanical energy; Work done by a variable force; Power

Meini Prawf


Student has demonstrated sound, basic knowledge and technique in tackling many of the topics covered in the module and so shown clear suitability for undergraduate degree studies.


Student has coped sufficiently well with some aspects of the module to achieve the minimum level of pass to allow progression onto an undergraduate degree programme.


Student has performed effectively in all aspects of the module and has demonstrated a high level of suitability for and can proceed with confidence to undergraduate degree studies.
