Area of Study :
To familiarize students with the basic concepts of MTH 211 and to make them able to develop an understanding of mathematical concepts that provide a foundation for the mathematics encountered in Engineering. The course allows students to work at their own level thereby developing confidence in mathematics and general problem solving. On successful completion of this course the student will be able to:
1.demonstrate a sound understanding of a number of mathematical topics that are essential for studies in Engineering;
2.interpret and solve a range of problems involving mathematical concepts relevant to this course ;
3.Effectively communicate the mathematical concepts and arguments contained in this course.
