Description

This module develops the basic mathematical skills and applies them to scientific scenarios.

Learning Outcomes

On completion of this module the learner will/should be able to;

1.

Analyse and sketch polynomial functions of a linear, quadratic and cubic nature. Discuss real world applications of these functions

2.

Analyse and sketch functions of a sinusiodal and reciprocal nature. Discuss real world applications of these functions

3.

Analyse and sketch functions of a logarithmic and exponential nature. Discuss real world applications of these functions

4.

Use the three laws of logarithms to solve pH and dB related problems.

5.

Draw and mathematically analyse max/min curves and solve optimisation problems.

6.

Identify different types of data and use appropriate tables and curves to analyse data sets.

7.

Communicate mathematical data individually and in teams in an appropriate format
