MTH102 Computer Aided Mathematics 2 with Applications (8)

The aim of this subject is to continue to develop students' ability to apply commonly used techniques in applied mathematics. Topics include integration, differential equations and modelling, series (including Taylor series), vectors and functions of several variables and complex numbers. The subject will also enable students to develop their skill in using a computer based algebra system.
