Mathematics for Information Sciences (7089.4)
|Level:||Level 1 - Undergraduate Introductory Unit|
|HECS Bands:||2, 4|
|Faculty:||Faculty of Education, Science, Technology & Maths|
|Discipline:||Academic Program Area - Maths & Technology|
This subject is concerned with mathematics and statistics and their application in computing and information technology. Topics covered will be drawn from probability and statistics (counting, probability, descriptive statistics, correlation and regression, hypothesis testing, statistical computer packages) and from mathematics (linear systems, matrices and transformations, applications in computer graphics, fractals, differentiation, maxima and minima, Bezier curves).
1.Students will be expected to understand mathematical and statistical models and their application in graphics, IT and other contexts; to appreciate essential differences in continuous and discrete mathematical problems; and have acquired skills needed to analyse data and solve mathematical problems in the areas studied.
