On successful completion of this module, **you should be able to**:

### Module Specific Skills and Knowledge:

- use level 1 mathematical skills in matrices, complex numbers, vectors, calculus and statistics, numerical and iteration techniques, ensuring that more advanced topics may be studied with confidence in later modules.

### Discipline Specific Skills and Knowledge:

- formulate in mathematical and statistical terms simple problems encountered in geo-scientific and energy related areas
- take data from a range of sources and undertake simple modeling tasks with external guidance.

### Personal and Key Transferable/ Employment Skills and Knowledge:

- apply given tools/methods accurately and appropriately to a well defined problem and further appreciate the complexity of mathematical issues in the degree discipline;
- present mathematical work, and communicate conclusions to a wide audience in a clear and logical way;
- demonstrate familiarity with the software package MathCad to support the study and communication of mathematics.

If a module is normally assessed entirely by coursework, all referred/deferred assessments will normally be by assignment.

If a module is normally assessed by examination or examination plus coursework, referred and deferred assessment will normally be by examination.

For referrals, only the examination will count, a mark of 40% being awarded if the examination is passed.

For deferrals, candidates will be awarded the higher of the deferred examination mark or the deferred examination mark combined with the original coursework mark.
