Subject Title
Advanced Mathematics

Subject Description
This course draws on the concepts introduced in preceding math courses, applying them to establishing a mathematical understanding of advanced communication and control principles. A sound background in integration techniques and simple differential equations is provided. Key topics in the course include the application of Fourier series to the spectral analysis of signals, and of Laplace transforms to the concepts of feedback and control.

Credit Status
One subject credit in Electronics Engineering Technology programs.

Learning Outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject the student will be able to:

1. Obtain integrals of a wide variety of functions using tables
2. Calculate selected types of integrals using:Simple substitution, trigonometric substitution, power rule for integrals, integration by parts, and partial fractions.
3. Calculate RMS values of key functions in electronics, such as sin, cos, sawtooth, square
4. Calculate MEAN values for a variety of commonly used functions, such as full-wave rectified sin, half - wave recitified sin, sawtooth, square
5. Solve first order differential equations with: separable variables and integreable combinations
6. Calculate Laplace Transforms of simple functions, such as f(t)=1, t, t2, sinat, cosat
7. Obtain forward and inverse Laplace Transforms using tables
