Introduction

This is a refresher mathematics and modelling course to prepare students for UNENE courses. UNENE students come from a wide variety of science and engineering background and may have been away from academia for a number of years. Unused math skills fade quickly. This course is intended to get students up to speed quickly in key mathematical areas that commonly arise in this program. It is NOT intended for first-time learners.

Course Material

Problems
Please note that not all of the materials in the Course Notes can be covered in a two-day refresher course. The Course Notes can be used for future reference. There are a great number of examples that can be used for self-study.
