YEAR/SEMESTER               Year I, Semester II

 

CONTACT HOURS            60 hours (45 hrs. lecture, 15 hrs. tutorial)

                                                Credit Hours = 4

 

 

PURPOSE OF THE COURSE

 

This course is designed is to enable the student to develop a thorough understanding of advanced algebra and trigonometry. It introduces coordinate geometry and the binary system to the student, and establishes the basis for further studies in engineering in the second year.

 

 

ASSESSMENT

 

Assessment will be by Coursework and Final Examination. Coursework will comprise assignments, tests, quizzes, etc.  The Final Examination will be a single three-hour paper.

 

The weighting of Coursework and Final Examination will be:

 

                                                                Coursework         = 50%

                                                                Final exam            = 50%
