Overview

The goal of this mathematics course is to provide high school students and college freshmen an introduction to basic mathematics and especially show how mathematics is applied to solve fundamental engineering problems. The aim of the course is to show the students why mathematics is important in an engineering career by demonstrating how simple engineering problems can be mathematically described and methodically analyzed to find a solution.

A number of applied examples from various engineering disciplines will be introduced, analyzed and solved.

Dfarning completed this course, spending 40 hours a week on it and found the course difficulty to be easy.
So far, I have been impressed with this class. It seems to be a great introduction for someone starting out in engineering. In high school and calculus one 'learns math.' An engineer 'uses math' to understand the world around them. It requires as subtle yet profound shift in thinking.

The course also helps answer the question, do I have enough math background to successful start at a engineering school like UT arlington. It is much better to find out the summer before that you have a weakness in a subject before the rush of first semester.

Please note, the average of 40 hours per week I put down was because I had never seen matrices before. I spent a bunch of time catching up to the point where I could manipulate them to the same degree the instructor used in the lecture.
