After finishing this course you will be able to recognise problems that can be solved by differentiation, integration and probability theory. You will also be familiar with the fundamental methods to actually solve those problems. In particular, the criteria for the assessment are along the following aspects:
 Ability to apply the appropriate method(s)
 Accuracy of computations
 Remembering the most essential formulas (also necessary for understanding)
 Clarity of the description of solutions
 Clarity of logical steps
 Recognising relations among representations
 Making sense and persevering to find ways to solve a problem


This is an introductory course, in which a student learns the most important topics within calculus and probability theory that a computer scientist needs to know.

NWIIPC020 Mathematical Structures and NWIIBC016 Combinatorics. There is no other prerequisite for this course; however, a mathematical maturity is required because of many subtle, new concepts and the applications of all the mathematical topics that have been covered before university. Therefore, you should make sure that you have a solid knowledge of all precalculus material.

  


   Required materialsReaderA reader about calculus and a reader about probability theory will be provided during the course.
