Mathematics and Statistics


This module covers the development of mathematics and statistics skills.

Mathematics: This involves developing and demonstrating competence in arithmetic, algebra, trigonometry and basic calculus

Statistics : This includes the evaluation of the basic descriptive statistics, using the probability laws and the Binomial, Poisson and Normal distributions to evaluate probabilities

Learning Outcomes

  1. Demonstrate mastery of basic arithmetic & algebra: evaluate numerical expressions; simplify & manipulate expressions & formulae; solve systems of equations

  2. Calculate trigonometric ratios and solve related problems

  3. Perform basic calculus: apply rules of differentiation & integration to compute derivatives and integrals

  4. Describe and summarise sample data using descriptive statistics: calculating measures of centrality & dispersion

  5. Calculate probabilities for discrete & continuous distributions
