Joint Maths and Computing first year
First Year Regulations
The first year JMC contains the following Maths modules, offered by the Maths department. The assessment of these modules combines coursework, test and exam components.
|MATH40011||Calculus and Applications||1|
|MATH40009||Introduction to University Mathematics||1|
|MATH40012||Calculus, Algebra and Analysis||2|
There are three core modules from the Department of Computing, each with their own coursework and written examination: Logic, Reasoning about Programs, Graphs and Algorithms.
There is also an integrated module of coursework in all three terms: Computing Practical 1. It includes Programming and Professional Issues.
Programming is assessed by on-line tests and project work. There is also a research aspect, which runs in the first and second terms. This is assessed by reports and presentations.
