This course will introduce the most basic elements of mathematics suitable for Grade 12 students who wants to upgrade their matric results. The course is designed for students who wants to pursue higher/further education studies in the engineering and the built environment.
It is therefore referred to as Engineering Mathematics course though students who wants to pursue other fields of studies such as accounting, sciences and medicine may also attend topics/programmes that are relevant to those fields of studies.
Topics/Programmes Include: arithmetic, introduction to algebra, expressions and equations, graphs, linear equations, polynomial equations, binomials, partial fractions, trigonometry, functions, trigonometric and exponential functions, linear programming, differentiation and integration.
Critical evaluation of technologies where mathematics is applicable to link and seamlessly integrate mathematics taught in the classroom with real engineering and the built environment world, including Introduction to Post Matric Engineering Mathematics. Thus, creating a big picture perspective.
The purpose of this private tutoring is to provide a complete year’s course in mathematics for those studying in the engineering, technical and scientific fields as already mentioned above.
The material has been specially written for courses leading to Bachelor of Science, Bachelor of Engineering, Bachelor of Engineering Technology and National Technical Diploma.
The emphasis throughout the tutoring is on providing the student with sound mathematical skills and with a working knowledge and appreciation of the basic concepts involved. The programmed structure ensures that the tutoring is highly suited for general class use and for individual revisional self-study, and also provides a ready means for remedial work or subsequent revision.
