MATH - Mathematics 2

Module Title:Mathematics 2
Language of Instruction: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 items 1 and 2 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 lecturer’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 3 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.
