Brief Handbook Description: This unit of study focuses on scientific problem solving and data visualisation using computers and is complementary to COSC1002. Students will learn how to solve problems arising in the natural sciences and mathematics using core features of the problem solving environment MATLAB, with a choice of problems from various areas of science at each stage. Emphasis will be placed on graphical display and visualisation of data and solutions to problems. No previous knowledge of programming is assumed.
Assumed Knowledge: HSC Mathematics
Timetable: COSC1001 Timetable
T&L Activities: Lectures: One 1 hour lecture and one 2 hour practical per week.

Practical Work:
Assessment Description: One assignment, practical work, including practical exams, theory exam (100%)
