# Joint Maths and Computing first year

## First Year Regulations

### Maths modules:

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.

CodeCourseTerm
MATH40010 Analysis I 1
MATH40011 Calculus and Applications 1
MATH40009 Introduction to University Mathematics 1
MATH40012 Calculus, Algebra and Analysis 2

### Computing modules:

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.
