Credits: 10
NFQ Level:7
Module Delivered In 2 programme(s)
Teaching & Learning Strategies: (a) A series of lectures will be delivered using whiteboard and data projector. (b) The Institute Managed Learning Environment will be used to interactively communicate with students e.g. on-line test, discussion forums, reference information (c) Mathematical software (e.g. Matlab) will be used by students to re-enforce the mathematical principles and practices
Module Aim: To give the students the knowledge, competencies and skills necessary to support the mathematical procedures encountered in the other modules of this course.
Learning Outcomes
