Module Title: Mathematics 1 English
 Credits: 5
 NFQ Level: 6
Module Delivered In 8 programme(s)
Teaching & Learning Strategies: The students will be organized into lectures and be given two lectures a week in order to cover module content items1 to 3 inclusive. During these lectures the students will be encouraged to be active. They will be given activities to attempt, during the lecture, in order to re-enforce the learning and understanding achieved through the lecturerâ€™s introduction. The students will be then given take home activity sheets in order to be able to continue practicing the techniques. The students will be allocated a one hour tutor supervised computer laboratory session every week. In this session the students will be guided and supported through a Computer Assisted Learning (CAL) package which will cover module content items 4. The learning here will be self-paced and guided and supported by the tutor. The package will be available for student use outside their scheduled laboratory time.
Module Aim: This module aims to provide students with a broad and solid foundation in mathematical concepts and techniques that they may encounter in subsequent programme modules.
