It is an important venture, for the Mathematics Department to undertake the enhancement of Engineering and Business practice through Mathematics and Physics, since Mathematics is a fundamental tool in Engineering and Business, while Engineering study hinges on a strong understanding of various physical phenomena.
The department employed a plethora of strategies in order to achieve this goal.
The first being through example and project based learning, which are crucial to both the Schools of Engineering and Business, due to the very applicable nature of the two disciplines. Secondly, interfaculty collaboration between the Department of Mathematics and their colleagues in the Schools of Engineering and Business, proved instrumental to instilling proper Engineering and Business practices into the students through the various Mathematics and Physics units offered at the College.
This interfaculty cooperation has allowed the Department of Mathematics to know firsthand from the faculty of the Schools of Engineering and Business, which topics need further consideration and/or focus when teaching the students their core Mathematics and Physics units.
The Department has recognized that students tend to accumulate information at differing rates, efficiencies and in a variety of methods. As such, the Department has implemented a 1 to 1 tutoring program that gives struggling students a chance to understand the material in a more focused manner. This will allow students in the program to learn in a way that may be more unorthodox, however it will ultimately be more effective and efficient in getting the student to understand their coursework.
