John Cameron (Trimester 1), Vicky Mak (Trimester 2)
Campus: 3 x 1 hour class per week, 1 x 1 hour practical per week.
Cloud (online): Learning experiences are via CloudDeakin. Students will have the opportunity to participate in online consultation sessions.
Assumed knowledge: Year 12 mathematics or equivalent. The unit SIT190 is recommended for students who did not complete VCE Mathematical Methods 3 and 4.
This unit provides students with the foundations in a range of areas in discrete mathematics, which is the basis for mathematical reasoning in applied sciences. SIT192 is designed to prepare students from a number of different disciplines for further study in the areas of linear algebra, number theory, graph theory, symbolic logic, set theory and combinatorics. These areas of study are vital for studying cryptography, networks, computer programming and analysis of algorithms.
Four problem solving tasks (10% each) 40% and examination 60%. To be eligible to obtain a pass in this unit, students must achieve a mark of at least 40% in the examination.
