Description

Mathematics for Engineering is designed for students with little math backgrounds to learn Applied Mathematics in the most simple and effective way. The aim of this course is to provide students with the knowledge of not only mathematical theories but also their real world applications so students understand how and when to use them.

This course is divided into 3 sections. Section 1 (the first 4 lectures) covers the most fundamental math that anyone should learn. Here you will learn about different number types, power, square root, logarithm, sine and cosine functions as well as solving different types of equations. At the end of section 1 you should have a better understanding of functions and equations. Section 2 (Lecture 5 to Lecture 9) introduces you to the world of calculus. Here you will learn the fundamental definition of integration and differentiation. You will also learn the most commonly-used rules and properties through simple examples. Section 3 (Lecture 10 & 11) covers complex number and sequence & series. In these two lectures you will learn their practical use, complex number arithmetic, graphical representations and how to evaluate a series.

At the end of this course, you should have a good understanding of all the topics covered in this course and be able to use them in the real world application. 

Who this course is for:

  • Students who wish to learn applied mathematics. That is, how mathematics is used in the practical world.
  • Students who are going to learn more advanced engineering courses. Most intermediate engineering courses will require the basic math covered in this course.

With many years working in the fields of Electrical Engineering as a research assistant, design engineer and a teacher, I have learned to deliver both the theoretical and practical knowledge to my students in the most direct and simple way.

In my course, You will find that all the lectures follow through one another and I will always include the reason for learning a particular theory.

My philosophy of teaching is to encourage students to start and finish a course by giving them just enough information at the beginning. Then I will provide more details as students begin to think, to try, to encounter problems and to question. This type of active learning has proven to be most effective through my years of teaching which is why I use it here. So learn actively and ask questions!

My goal is for students to learn Electrical Engineering in the most straightforward, simple and efficient way.
