Aims and objectives
This unit of study aims to provide students with the mathematical knowledge and skills to support their concurrent and subsequent studies, providing a thorough grounding in mathematics.
|Unit Learning Outcomes|
|On successful completion of this unit students will be able to:|
|#||Unit Learning Outcome Description|
|ULO1||Identify and apply standard approaches to solve mathematical systems and models|
|ULO2||Recognise and compose algebraic and geometric forms of functions, and convert between these forms|
|ULO3||Describe the relationship between real life phenomena and functions that model it, the appropriateness of these models, and associated errors|
|ULO4||Follow the principles of unbiased sampling, represent data using descriptive statistics and graphical approaches, using the normal distribution to produce interval estimates of parameters|
|ULO5||Interpret relationships between variables using correlation, regression and techniques of statistical inference, using key terms appropriately|
|ULO6||Use tables of derivatives and integrals for simple functions and identify and use appropriate techniques to differentiate and integrate more complicated functions, including ordinary differential equations|
|ULO7||Apply the rules of differentiation and integration to calculate linear approximations of functions, classify stationary points, and compute areas|
