Mathematics for IT 2

Aims & Objectives

The aim of this module is to enable the learner to build on the knowledge and skills acquired at stage one through computational thinking and problem solving and Mathematics for Computing 1. It will enable the learner to see mathematics as an integral part of their studies and is necessary as part of successful progression both horizontally and vertically within the programme.

This module will ensure learners meet the following objectives:

  • Recognise the applications of mathematics in computing.
  • Learn about functions and their use in computing.
  • Use calculus to calculate derivatives.
  • Produce solutions to real and evolving problems.
  • Engender a critical mind-set in computing and computing based problems.
