Maths and IT for Science - (15 credits)

This module aims to develop the students’ mathematical confidence and competency in basic statistical analysis and methods. Within their chosen sector, students will demonstrate the ability to manipulate numerical information, including whole number, decimal, percentages and fractional forms, while learning how to collect, interpret, analyse and present data via standard techniques. Students will gain relevant skills necessary for data analysis, including correlation, arithmetic and geometric sequences, and numerical problem solving. Students will understand how to utilise basic software packages effectively (such as Microsoft Word, Excel, PowerPoint, Teams and project management software) within their studies. Utilising the internet and WUC’s own Virtual Learning Environment, individuals will become conversant with the various information and support mechanisms available to a Higher Education student and capable of using modern technology to support their studies and independent Learning.
