MTH 3552   Electrical math v   Credits: 3

In this course, students will classify functions as direct or inverse. Students will apply different rules of derivatives including limits and the delta method to differentiate algebraic, trigonometric, and exponential functions. Students will learn how to find maxima, minima, and points of inflection, and also to write the equation for tangents or normal to a curve. They will also apply Newton’s method to find roots of an equation. Rates of changes will be calculated as well. Finally, the students will find the derivatives of inverse trigonometric functions and higher order derivatives of algebraic functions. Students will also calculate definite and indefinite integrals using concepts of integration. They will calculate approximate and exact areas under a curve. Students will also apply integral calculus to real world problems in engineering technology. These problems include electrical applications, fluid pressure on an object submerged at different depths, and work done by a variable force. Students will also integrate exponential, logarithmic, and trigonometric functions. Computation of the average value and root mean square (rms) value of a function will be performed too. Integration by parts will be studied as well.
