Mathematics Units - 1996

To turn back a page

The units that students choose will depend on their major study. Mathematics is divided into the following 'parcels' of units:

Mathematics 1, Mathematics 2, Mathematics 3

Discrete Mathematics 1, Discrete Mathematics 2, Discrete Mathematics 3

Basic Mathematics,

Mathematics 2C, Mathematics 3C.

Students may choose to study one or two of these parcels, or they may choose individual units. Not all units are necessarily offered each year. The following are recommended:

Year 1:Mathematics 1 and Discrete Mathematics 1Year 2:Mathematics 2 and Discrete Mathematics 2Year 3:Mathematics 3 and Discrete Mathematics 3

Year 1:Mathematics 1Year 2:Mathematics 2Year 3:Mathematics 3

Year 1:Discrete Mathematics 1Year 2:Discrete Mathematics 2Year 3:Discrete Mathematics 3

Year 1:Basic MathematicsYear 2:Selected units of Discrete Mathematics 2Year 3:Selected units of Discrete Mathematics 3

Year 1:Mathematics 1 or Basic Mathematics 1Year 2:Mathematics 2 or Discrete Mathematics 2Year 3:Selected units of Mathematics 3C

Students should take careful note of the prerequisites and corequisites of each unit (see unit descriptions and details below). If they are in any doubt as to the suitability of a unit, students should consult a staff member of the Department of Mathematics. Prerequisites can be waived by the Head of Department alone. Some unit combinations involve timetable clashes. Students are urged to check the timetable before discussing their proposed course with the departmental representative. They will be required to show a completed timetable when seeking final approval of their enrolment.Year 1

KMA110 Mathematics 1 [25%](consisting of KMA102 or KMA105)

KMA114 Discrete Mathematics 1 [25%](consisting of any three of KMA103, KMA107, KMA115, KMA151)

KMA117 Basic Mathematics [25%](consisting of KMA122 plus one of KMA107, KMA115, KMA151)Year 2

KMA200 Mathematics 2 [33.33%](consisting of KMA202 plus any two of KMA203, KMA204, KMA205, KMA213)

KMA223 Discrete Mathematics 2 [33.33%](consisting of any four of KMA203, KMA205, KMA224, KMA225, KMA251)

KMA229 Mathematics 2C [33.33%](consisting of any combination of year-two units forming a 33.33% loading approved by the Mathematics HoD)Year 3

KMA370 Mathematics 3 [50%](consisting of KMA301, KMA331, KMA332, KMA314, KMA341)

KMA316 Discrete Mathematics 3 [50%](consisting of any three of KMA303, KMA304, KMA312, KMA315)

KMA375 Mathematics 3C [50%](consisting of any combination of third-year units forming a 50% loading, approved by the Mathematics HoD).

The usual minimum requirement for admission to Mathematics Honours is 50% year-three Mathematics units including either KMA303 or KMA301. However, special arrangements can be made for students without either of these units.

Students should note that not all units are offered in any one year. Before selecting third-year units, students are advised to discuss their proposed courses with members of the lecturing staff of the department.
