Module Content & Assessment

Indicative Content
Complex Numbers
• Represent complex numbers in Cartesian and polar form Convert from one form to the other Understand phasors Add, subtract, multiply and divide complex numbers in Cartesian form Multiply and divide complex numbers in polar Use De Moivre’s Theorem for powers and roots of complex numbers
Differential Calculus
Evaluate simple limits Differentiate simple polynomial functions from first principles Differentiate by rule algebraic, trigonometric, exponential and logarithmic functions using chain, product and quotient rules Apply the derivative as a rate of change and as the slope of the tangent to a curve
Numerical Computation
