The Module Description is a strict subset of this Syllabus Page.
The aims of this module are to:
- provide a solid grounding in mathematics sufficient to understand a range of computer science topics and to act as a foundation for further study of mathematics relevant to computer science
- improve students' confidence in using mathematical concepts in computer science
On successful completion of this module, the student should be able to:
- apply a number of fundamental mathematical skills and techniques to the solution of problems relevant to computer science
- demonstrate a solid foundation in mathematics relevant to computer science sufficient to allow independent learning of further mathematical techniques in other computer science modules
