Applied Mathematics (CSTP 1108)

In this course, students gain a strong mathematical foundation for future technical and programming courses. This course deals with linear systems of equations and various common function types and their properties. Students will learn how to solve linear equations and how to draw graphs of common functions such as polynomials, periodic, logarithmic, and exponential functions.

Computers use binary numbers to represent all data. Students learn how different data types (integers, characters, and floating point numbers) are represented in computers. Students learn to apply math concepts to solve real life or technology-related problems. This course also covers the importance of mathematical logic and logical reasoning for proving a concept and theorem.

The emphasis in the course is not mathematical rigour. The goal is understanding and using these concepts in common cases, and learning is example-driven.
