Learning outcomes

Unit Learning Outcomes express learning achievement in terms of what a student should know, understand and be able to do on completion of a unit. These outcomes are aligned with the graduate attributes. The unit learning outcomes and graduate attributes are also the basis of evaluating prior learning.

On completion of this unit, students should be able to:
1 Demonstrate an understanding of and the ability to use basic mathematical skills
2 Apply quantitative techniques to solve real world mathematical problems
3 Use appropriate software in mathematical calculations and communications
4 Communicate mathematical ideas, processes and results effectively at different levels of formality
