Unit handbook information Synopsis Mathematical topics fundamental to computing and statistics including trees and other graphs, counting in combinatorics, principles of elementary probability theory, linear algebra, and fundamental concepts of calculus in one and several variables. Mode of delivery Monash Online (Online) Workload requirements Minimum total expected workload equals 144 hours per semester comprising: (a.) Contact hours for on-campus students: Three hours/week lectures One and half hours/week laboratories (b.) Contact hours for Monash Online students: Two hours/week online group sessionsOnline students generally do not attend lecture, tutorial and laboratory sessions, however should plan to spend equivalent time working through resources and participating in discussions. (c.) Additional requirements: A minimum of 7.5 hours per week of personal study (22 hours per week for Monash online students) for completing lab/ tutorial activities, assignments, private study and revision, and for online students, participating in discussions.

Academic overview Learning outcomes Upon successful completion of this unit, students should be able to: 1. use trees and graphs to solve problems in computer science; 2. apply counting principles in combinatorics; 3. describe the principles of elementary probability theory, evaluate conditional probabilities and use Bayes' Theorem; 4. demonstrate basic knowledge and skills of linear algebra, including the manipulation of matrices, solution of linear systems, and evaluate and apply determinants; 5. explain fundamental concepts in calculus including basic differentiation and integration, and composite, inverse and parametric functions; 6. perform key skills in the calculus of functions of several variables including the calculation of partial derivatives, find tangent planes and identify stationary points, root findings and convexity for optimisation. Teaching approach This is an online learning unit. Students learn through custom-made Alexandria content that incorporates significant problem-based learning and through weekly online support classes. Assessment summary On-campus: Examination (3 hours): 70%; In-semester assessment: 30% Monash Online: In-semester assessment: 100%

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
