Quantitative Methods in Geoscience, 7.5 credits

About the education

The course is specifically designed to prepare students with the mathematical skills that are required to complete a successful degree in Geoscience. Throughout the course, emphasis is on illustrating theoretical concepts with the use of applied examples from the geosciences. In in addition to these examples in the lectures, student understanding and skills are further cemented through self study and class exercises. The course begins with a revision of preliminary concepts such as numbers, units, coordinate systems, and functions. It continuous to cover different types of functions such as quadratic functions, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, power functions and trigonometric functions. The final half of the course comprises an introduction to differentiation and integration and the use of matrices and differential equations in Geoscience.
