Module description

Computer science, like all science and engineering disciplines, involves a degree of mathematics. Hence a solid grounding in mathematics is vital in order to attain full understanding of a wide range of computer science topics. This module takes all the relevant topics covered at GCSE and builds upon them. The twin objectives here are to improve students' mathematical knowledge and, just as importantly, their confidence in using that knowledge.
