CO322 Foundations of Computing I
OverviewThis module follows from CO322 and aims to provide students with more understanding of the theory behind the formal underpinnings of computing. It will build upon the abstract reasoning skills introduced in CO322. Matrices, vectors, differential calculus, probability and computer arithmetic will be introduced.
This module appears in:
2 lectures and 1 class per week (1 hour class for those in possession of A-level mathematics, 2 hour class for those who are not).
Croft & Davison, Foundation Maths, Prentice Hall, 2010.

Have developed a knowledge and understanding of, and the ability to apply the mathematical principles and concepts behind topics that comprise the CS programmes.
Have developed formal reasoning skills that will be required elsewhere in the degree programmes in which this module is taken.
Have basic understanding of Propositional and Predicate Logic: their syntax (connectives, quanitifiers) and their semantics (truth tables, logical equivalences).
Be able to write and evaluate expressions in Propositional and Predicate Logic
