MAU11002 Mathematics, statistics and computation (Hilary term 2023)
The module mathematics, statistics and computation introduces the basic mathematical concepts necessary for science students. It is divided into three parts: A calculus part, a discrete part and a statistics part. I will teach the discrete part.
The discrete part of the module covers sequences, vectors, matrices and some of their applications in science. The course does not follow a book completely, but reading Biocalculus: Calculus, Probability, and Statistics for the Life Sciences by James Stewart and Troy Day is advisable to get a different perspective.
All information including exercise sheets and assignments may be found on blackboard.
The module will be assessed by a midterm assignment and a final exam.
