Description: Aims:
To introduce students to a mathematical basis to support computer science in general and other Computer Science units in particular.

Learning Outcomes:
On completion of the unit the students will be able to:
1. understand and use the language of mathematics;
2. apply knowledge of appropriate discrete mathematics for computation.

Application of Number (T/F, A), Problem Solving (T/F, A).

* Propositional and predicate calculus (including basic logic).
* Sets and Relations (including Cartesian products).
* Mappings and functions (e.g. injective mappings, continuous functions).
* Integers and number (including fields and complex numbers).
NB. Programmes and units are subject to change at any time, in accordance with normal University procedures.
