Possible changes to your unit's learning activities and assessment items
As a result of the Australian Government's directives requiring physical distancing and restrictions on movement because of the COVID-19 pandemic, you may find that learning activities and/or assessment items in some units you are studying have changed. These changes will not be updated in the published Unit Outline but will be communicated to you via your unit’s UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. The new learning activities and/or assessment items will continue to meet the unit's learning outcomes, as described in the Unit Outline.
New learning activities and/or assessment items are available on your unit's UCLearn(Canvas) teaching site. Please contact your Unit Convener with any questions.

This unit teaches the fundamental methods of discrete mathematics that underlie modern software engineering and information technology. Topics include logic, basic proof, induction, sets, functions, relations, automata, graphs, and trees. The unit provides students with a thorough understanding of the basic techniques, together with an introduction to applications, such as the RSA algorithm or correctness of algorithms.
On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:
1. Demonstrate an understanding of the basic concepts;
2. Compute with logic, sets, functions, relations, automata, graphs and trees;
3. Recognise the connections between proof and algorithmic thinking;
4. Apply the methods in straightforward real-life examples; and
5. Interpret and assess the real-life implications of these examples.
