It is recommended that students without the programming skills to the equivalent of ITC315108 complete either KIT001 or KIT101
The aim of the unit is to introduce some basic ideas of discrete mathematics, which is to say, roughly, mathematics not based on calculus or limits. This material is pertinent to later mathematics courses such as those in algebra and also to the science and technology specific to the computer age. Topics such as sets, logic, number theory, counting, matrices and modelling are discussed with many examples, and with emphasis on applications using Python.
This provides a treatment of discrete mathematics for students planning to study such areas of advanced mathematics as Algebra, Number Theory, Operations Research and Statistics, as well as students taking a first course in Computer Science. Skills developed are also useful for careers in Engineering, Management, Finance, Economics and Teaching.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
Special approval is required for enrolment into TNE Program units.
