Introduction

Computers and mathematics are powerful tools for modelling and reasoning about the world around us. They are also powerful tools for reasoning about computation itself. This unit explores the fundamental topics of sets, logic, combinatorics and number theory as they apply to modelling real-world problems, as well as to thinking about the

operation of computers and program code. Learn just how much can be accomplished with a single line of Python. During the semester students will assemble their personal toolkit of mathematical and programming techniques, forming the

foundation of further study in mathematics, data science or software development.

Attendance/performance requirements and teaching and learning strategies

Learning anything, but particularly potentially challenging skills like mathematics and programming, requires practice. While participation in live activities is not mandatory, we strongly recommend that you participate in all tutorials, as it is when you are practising the unit’s skills that you will learn them. The tasks will be available beforehand and you should attempt them before attending class, seeking assistance on any parts where you had trouble.

Lectures will be live streamed using Zoom, with recordings available through Echo360 within 3 hours of each lecture. Each lecture will have time for working in groups on a newly introduced concept or skill.

In this unit, your early, active engagement will be monitored in the following way:

  1. Participation in tutorials Weeks 2–4 (attendance will continue to be monitored throughout semester)
  2. Completion of an unweighted quiz on basic arithmetic before the end of Week 4. The quiz will highlight any areas you need additional practice.

Communication

News and announcements will be posted to the unit’s Announcements stream on MyLO, and students are expected to be aware of the content of these items within 48 hours of them being posted.

You can use the discussion forum to ask questions and also to respond to questions posted by your peers. The lecturer will also respond to any queries, typically within 72 hours during semester time. Assignment solutions should not be

discussed (offer guidance only), but queries seeking clarification may be posted at any time and the lecturer will respond to them.

Teaching Pattern

Online prerecorded lectures: Up to 1 hour/week, to be viewed before the live lecture.

Lectures: 2 hours/week, delivered using Zoom, comprising instruction, demonstrations and group activities in breakout rooms.

Tutorials: 2 hours/week, in a computer lab, comprising mathematics exercises on your own paper or tablet, and programming activities on the computer.

Unit Content

See the Unit Overview content section of the site for a timeline view of the unit’s topics and assessment. The unit covers:

Set theory and functions: Set notation, set operations, Venn diagrams, Cartesian products, set comprehensions in Python, bitsets, and testing programming functions (the inputs and outputs of which are defined by sets).

Boolean algebra and conditional program logic: Statements (propositions), negation, conjunction and disjunction of statements, truth tables, Karnaugh Maps, De Morgan’s laws, tautologies, contradictions, validation of conditional program logic Combinatorics: Counting and generating arrangements, permutations and combinations.

Number theory: Prime numbers, divisibility properties, sieving algorithms, one-way functions, positional notation, number systems and converting between bases.

Successful completion of this unit supports your development of course learning outcomes, which describe what a graduate of a course knows, understands and is able to do. Course learning outcomes are available by selecting the appropriate course from this page https://www.utas.edu.au/courses/study/computing-and-it, and choosing Learning Outcomes or they can be obtained from the Course Coordinator. Course learning outcomes are developed with reference to national discipline standards, Australian Qualifications Framework (AQF), any professional accreditation requirements and the University of Tasmania’s Graduate Statement.

The University of Tasmania experience unlocks the potential of individuals. Our graduates are equipped and inspired to shape and respond to the opportunities and challenges of the future as accomplished communicators, highly regarded professionals and culturally competent citizens in local, national, and global society. University of Tasmania graduates acquire subject and multidisciplinary knowledge and skills, and develop critical and creative literacies and numeracies and skills of inquiry. They demonstrate the ability to apply this knowledge in changing circumstances. Our graduates recognise and critically evaluate issues of social responsibility, ethical conduct and sustainability, are entrepreneurial and creative, and are mindful of their own wellbeing and that of the community. Through respect for diversity and by working in collaborative ways, our graduates reflect the values of the University of Tasmania.

Knowledge use a wide range of academic skills (research, analysis, synthesis etc) to problem-solve an ICT-related issue; understand the limitation of, and have the capacity to evaluate, their current knowledge; develop a broad knowledge base and respect the contribution of other disciplines or professional areas relating to ICT; identify, evaluate and implement personal learning strategies; learn both independently and cooperatively; learn new skills and apply learning to new and unexpected situations; and recognise opportunities.

Communication Skills demonstrate oral, written, numerical and graphic communication; use the medium and form of communication appropriate for a given situation; present well-reasoned arguments, using technology as appropriate; access, organise and present information, particularly through technology-based activity; and listen to and evaluate the views of others.

Problem-solving Skills identify critical issues in the discipline or professional area; conceptualise problems and formulate a range of solutions; work effectively with others; and find, acquire, evaluate, manage and use relevant information in a range of media.

Global Perspective demonstrate an awareness of the local and global context of the ICT discipline or professional area; and function in a multicultural or global context

Social Responsibility acknowledge the social and ethical implications of their actions; appreciate the impact of social change; be committed to access and equity principles in the ICT discipline or professional area, and society in general; and demonstrate responsibility to the local community, and society generally.

Alterations to the unit as a result of student feedback

From 2014 to 2020 this unit was co-taught with KMA155 Discrete Mathematics with Applications, with the same learning experiences but differently weighted assessment. In order that a student could take both units and gain useful, distinct skills from each, the two units were split last year, with the following key changes to KIT103:

Some reduction in foundational (‘theoretical’) mathematical topics and increased emphasis on applications, particularly to the understanding and testing of computer code

No test-based assessment: the three 20% in-semester tests and 10 small assignments have been replaced by four 15% assignments combining on-paper maths and in computer programming exercises and a final project, comprising tasks that integrate the various skills taught and a reflective piece summarising your learning in the unit

Simplified teaching pattern: three 50-minute lectures rigidly split into two on maths and one on applications are now a single 2-hour timeslot that will vary the focus on mathematics or applications as required; the 50-minute mathematics tutorial and 50-minute computer lab are now a single 2-hour block, with the split between on-paper maths practice and tasks on the computer varied as needed.

These changes were well-received by students and so have been maintained this year.

Academic integrity

What is academic integrity?

At the University of Tasmania, academic integrity requires all students to act responsibly, honestly, ethically, and collegially when using, producing, and communicating information with other students and staff members. The University community is committed to upholding the Statement on Academic Integrity.

Breaches of academic integrity such as plagiarism, contract cheating, collusion and so on are counter to the fundamental values of the University. A breach is defined as being when a student:

  1. fails to meet the expectations of academic integrity; or
    1. seeks to gain, for themselves or for any other person, any academic advantage or advancement to which they or that other person is not entitled; or
    1. improperly disadvantages any other member of the University community.

The University and any persons authorised by the University may submit your assessable works to a text matching service, to obtain a report on possible breaches such as plagiarism or contract cheating. Substantiated breaches can result in a range of sanctions which are outlined in the Student Academic Integrity Ordinance.

More information is available from the Academic Integrity site for students on the Student Portal.

The University and any persons authorised by the University may submit your assessable works to a text matching service, to obtain a report on possible instances of plagiarism or contract cheating.

Academic Integrity Training Module

As part of the University’s educative approach to academic integrity, there is a short Academic Integrity Training Module that all students are required to complete.

Completion of the module allows you to demonstrate your understanding of what constitutes a breach of academic integrity.

All commencing students (pre-degree through to higher degree by research) are required to complete the Academic Integrity module available through MyLO. If you do not complete this module your final unit results will be withheld. You should aim to complete the module within the first few weeks of commencing study at the University.

Referencing

In your written work you will need to support your ideas by referring to scholarly literature, works of art and/or inventions. It is important that you understand how to correctly refer to the work of others and maintain academic integrity.

Failure to appropriately acknowledge the ideas of others constitutes a breach of academic integrity

The University library provides information on presentation of assignments, including referencing styles and should be referred to when completing tasks in this unit.

For further information, see the Academic Integrity site for Students on the Student Portal.

In programs you write: If you are guided to a solution by a particular website, include a link to that site in the comment at the top of your program and indicate which parts of your solution are based on its content. Note that you do not need to reference code that has been provided in lectures or tutorials.

Submissions

The details of the submission method (paper, electronic or other) for each assignment will be supplied in a separate

assignment specification sheet. The act of submitting your assignment will be taken as certification that it is your own work.

Students must take responsibility for the correct submission of their work, including ensuring that all items required by

the task specification are submitted in the correct format. Students are expected to adhere to the following procedure for submission:

Submitted files must be checked by the student to ensure that correct submission of the file has been undertaken. For those items submitted close to their due date and time, students are expected to notify the Unit Coordinator within two hours of submission if their files have not been submitted correctly.

Students must take responsibility for safely backing up of their own files during the academic year to ensure that no files are permanently lost.

Extensions

Assignments submitted after the deadline will receive a late penalty of 5% (of the original available mark) for each calendar day (or part day) that the assignment is late. Late submissions will not be accepted more than 10 calendar days after the due date, or after assignments have been returned to other students, whichever is shorter.

A request for an extension to the due date for an assessment task should be made in writing and submitted to the Unit Coordinator THREE (3) days before the assignment due date. Independent documentation (medical certificate, counsellor’s report, etc.) in support of the application should be attached to the form OR a current Learning Access Plan may be used as supporting documentation, as appropriate.

Please see the University’s Assessments and Results Procedure 2022 for the extension request procedure.
