Engineering Mathematics I

Engineering Mathematics I


This course covers calculus of one variable, techniques of differentiation and integration and their applications. Sequences and series and some of the convergence tests. Extension of the concepts of differentiation and integration to two and more variables by the study of partial differentiation. Taylor series, Maclaurin series and Fourier series. Concepts of complex functions and vectors. Concepts of probability, distributions, mean, variance.
