Develop skills in calculus with further differentiation techniques. 

Introduction to integration, and integration techniques including substitution rule, integration by partial fractions, and integration by part. 

Factor and remainder theorems.

Complex numbers are important in many engineering applications.

First order differential equations. 

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;


Apply differentiation techniques for example, logarithmic, parametric, implicit, and partial differentiation .


Introduce complex numbers, graphing, Cartesian, polar forms, addition, subtraction, multiplication and division of complex numbers, deMoivre's theorem.


Introduction to integration, standard integrals, substitution rule, integration by parts.


Integration using partial fractions.


Solve first order differential equations using seperation of variables


Factor & Remainder theorems.

Teaching and Learning Strategies

This module will be taught year long with a mixture of theory classes and weekly tutorials where the students work in groups solving exercises based on the previous weeks class.

Module Assessment Strategies

Tutorials each week, plus a final exam.

Repeat Assessments

Students may have to repeat tutorials, final exam or both. Repeat tutorials will be dine using Moodle,

Indicative Syllabus

  1. Review differentiation using using product, quotient and chain rules applied to various problem
  2. Differentiation of parametric and implicit functions. Use of logarithmic differentiation.
  3. Partial differentiation of functions such as z =f(x,y,w) and its application in finding small incremental changes and rate of change problems.
  4. Complex numbers, what are they, graphs, Cartesian and polar forms, arithmetic using complex numbers. DeMoivre's theorem.
  5. Integration of xn ,sin(f(x)), cos(f(x)),ef(x) ,ln(f(x)). Use methods of substitution, partial fractions, and integration by parts to integrate further functions.
  6. First order differential equations solved by direct integration and by separation of variables methods.
  7. Factor and Remainder theorems.
