### Reviews

This is an entire subject of plug 'n chug. They give you formulae and you plug values in to solve problems. As long as you know how to use the each formula it's an easy H1 - however this means that they are extremely pedantic about marking the assignments. Very little actual mathematical understanding is gained (there are essentially zero proofs), so I personally didn't enjoy it very much. That being said, it is a well run subject with good resources, and gives you the groundwork for engineering subjects that use a little bit of applied math.

I loved this subject! You cover a wide range of mathematics, all of which will be necessary in your future engineering studies. I particularly liked the Partial Differential Equations and Laplace Transform topics. Assignments are relatively tricky, and the final exam was very difficult. However, it is a manageable subject if you stay up to date and seek help when necessary.

This was a really enjoyable subject. Time wasn't wasted on proofs (good for engineering student, bad for math student) and the lecturers were really on top of things. To be honest, didn't go to many tutorials due to COVID and most of them being online, but they were great learning resources when I did attend. Most of it is an extension of Calc 2, with a little bit of Lin Alg thrown in there (pretty much eigenvector stuff + MATLAB). The assignments were tricky, but not impossible so make sure you start early and show ALL working and justifications for things that you do. In retrospect, given I enjoyed the subject so much, it probably would have been better for me to do differential equations and vector calculus, but Eng Maths is definitely doable.

Well taught, really the same format to be expected of unimelb maths but without wasting time on proofs. The vector calc section was challenging but actually interesting. But then the differential equations section just seemed to combine calc 2 and lin alg without extending, the rest of the subject feels like you're using what you already know to learn useful stuff like laplace and fourier series and didn't feel too hard. Sequences and series was a very comfortable extension from calc 2, but the subject picks up in difficulty again for PDEs. By that time though in the first covid semester I ran out of motivation to study PDEs properly and revised the rest so only pulled a 60 (same score as my calc 1 and calc 2 though I H1'd lin alg). My only complaint about this subject is one that frustrates me, (before covid) the lecturers/coordinator deliberately block half of the slides from appearing on lecture capture. They explain why they do this in the first lecture and on the lms, basically they don't believe that lecture capture is an appropriate replacement for lectures so they kill the resource as much as the uni will let them to make the only valid option attending in person. Just be prepared for that when you do your timetable

The subject is well organised and combines ideas from core second-year maths subjects vector calculus, differential equations and real analysis. It does not go into any of the analysis theories or proofs, but this is understandable given it is tailored to engineering students. The subject is essentially 3 maths subjects crammed into 1 so I would recommend those who are doing a maths heavy area of engineering to do vector calculus and differential equations after. Christine Manglesdorf (stream 2), in my opinion, handles the subject better than Marcus Brazil (stream 1).

Summer 2020 Eng maths is a very rewarding subject specially for those planning to pursue an engineering major! This subject is based a lot on application and understanding the meaning behind the calculus (mostly from calc 2) that you are doing. I felt like doing the subject over the summer gave me a lot of breathing space to fully digest all the new concepts and sufficient time to finish the problem booklet (which is a MUST if you want to score well in my opinion). All in all, the subject is very practice-based and if you keep up every week, you should be good.

Lectures are taught well and the tutorials helped reinforce your understanding of the concepts. The structure of the subject is excellent as everything in the tutes, assignments and problem booklet can be found on the final exam. Therefore you can easily score well if you keep up to date and understand the topics.

Well organized, a little bit heavy on the topics at the beginning of the course, but gets relatively more enjoyable towards the end. Down-side: lectures are recorded but not in any way that helps you study if you don't attend them in the first place. They record half of the screen only, if you're lucky sometimes the two streams record alternate page numbers so you get a whole out of two halves, but can't depend on it.

Best math subject I've done so far. Very good for engineering students as it only teaching you what you'll need to know for other engineering subjects (unlike the equivalent single branch subjects which go into way too much depth). The coordinator of this subject however makes your life hell by purposefully not recording lectures properly so you have to attend in person. This is not allowed by the student union so make sure you complain when they start doing it.

Interesting and engaging subject, probably the most enjoyable mathematics I've undertaken thus far.
