This course is aimed at engineering students who are about to take Fluid Mechanics but need a review of prerequisite math concepts. The course is planned to cover material from Calculus and Differential Equations. The proposed modules for the course are:
- Module 1: Derivatives
- Module 2: Integrals
- Module 3: Vector Calculus
- Module 4: Ordinary Differential Equations
- Module 5: Partial Differential Equations
This course is being developed with the support of the BOLD Graduate Fellowship awarded by the Center for Teaching and Learning at Georgia Institute of Technology; and the Affordable Materials Grant Round 19 awarded by Affordable Learning Georgia, an initiative of the University System of Georgia.
As of May 2021, materials for Modules 2-5 have not yet been completed. It is estimated that a first version of these modules will be made available by the end July 2021, with the full course being released in May 2022.
Module 1: Derivatives
Introduction: Terminology & Notation
Derivatives of Basic Functions
Rules of Derivation
Application: Acceleration & the Material Derivative
