Learning outcomes:
_ After successfully completing this module, students will be able to apply integration rules and use integral calculus to solve specific problems such as areas, centres of gravity, moments of inertia.
_ They will be able to check linear systems of equations for their solvability and determine solutions those systems. They will be able to solve eigenvalue problems and simple differential equations. They will be able to determine the probability distributions of random variables, as well as calculate expected values and standard deviations.
