Further information on descriptions 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. Calculate with the rudiments of linear algebra.
2. Reason about series to the point of Taylor/Maclaurin expansions.
3. Use appropriate software tools for linear algebra and calculus.

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

Linear Algebra elementary matrices and vectors, Gaussian elimination, inverses, determinants, Eigenvalues and
Eigenvectors, equations of lines and planes in space.
Series: sequences and series, convergence, real numbers, derivatives, absolute convergence, comparison and integral tests, Taylor/Maclaurin series.
