About this Unit
This unit will introduce the programming language Python, through which students will explore and investigate practical mathematical problems. Python is one of the most powerful versatile programming languages, and it is increasingly used by engineers and scientists as well as banks and financial institutions to tackle their computational problems. The unit promotes an experimental side of mathematics and will employ Python-based computational tools to gain insight and intuition into problems, to discover mathematical patterns and relationships, and to use visualisation techniques to expose mathematical structures.
