Objective: 

This is a basic module introducing simple ideas and methods in mathematics to students of chemistry. Topics include linear algebra, data-handling, calculus, differentiation and integration.

Assessment: 

lecture: Written assessment, solving global problems
seminar: Written assessment, solving representative problems

Contents: 

Symbolic Mathematics and Mathematical Functions

The Solution of Algebraic Equations

Mathematical Functions and Differential Calculus

Integral Calculus

Calculus With Several Independent Variables

Introduction to Linear Algebra

On completion of this module, a student will be able to:

  • apply basic mathematical procedures to relevant problems in chemistry;

  • identify the essential basis of simple chemical problems and represent these in mathematical form;

  • manipulate algebraic expressions, analyse experimental data and carry out essential procedures in calculus.

  • solving the complex problems in collaboration with other students
