**Unit introduction**

The understanding of more advanced mathematics is important within an engineering curriculum to support and broaden abilities within the applied subjects at the core of all engineering programmes. You are introduced to additional topics that will be relevant as you progress to the next level of their studies, advancing your knowledge of the underpinning mathematics gained in Unit 2: Engineering Maths.

The unit will prepare analyse and model engineering situations using mathematical techniques. Among the topics included in this unit are: number theory, complex numbers, matrix theory, linear equations, numerical integration, numerical differentiation, and graphical representations of curves for estimation within an engineering context. Finally, you will expand your knowledge of calculus to discover how to model and solve engineering problems using first and second order differential equations.

On successful completion of this unit, you will be able to use applications of number theory in practical engineering situations, solve systems of linear equations relevant to engineering applications using matrix methods, approximate solutions of contextualised examples with graphical and numerical methods, and review models of engineering systems using ordinary differential equations.

By the end of this you will be able to:

1. Use applications of number theory in practical engineering situations.

2. Solve systems of linear equations relevant to engineering applications using matrix methods.

3. Approximate solutions of contextualised examples with graphical and numerical methods.

4. Review models of engineering systems using ordinary differential equations.
