Thank you so much
To provide learners with an understanding of the underlying mathematical concepts that support the diverse fields supported by software engineers.
This Unit 23 Mathematics for Software Development is an introduction to some of the mathematical concepts and techniques that will be required by software engineers. To develop the mathematical skills necessary for software engineering learners must gain a range of mathematical skills, which are often applied in the creation of coded solutions to everyday problems. The unit will allow the learner to appreciate and prepare for the more advanced concepts of mathematics required in relation to software engineering. Learners taking this unit will explore areas of mathematics that are used to support programming. It will cover conditional statements, graphics and gaming (geometry and vectors), relationships in databases, the calling of methods (or procedures), matrices in the handling of arrays, large datasets and mapping, statistics, calculus and set theory.
