1.3 Rewrite an exponential equation in logarithmic form and a logarithmic equation in exponential form

Unit 4IT02: Mathematics and Statistics for IT

Unit code: R/617/6693 RQF

Level: 4

Unit Aims

This unit aims to provide an opportunity to learn mathematics and statistics and equip learners with the mathematical skills to analyse and solve problems that will enable them to work within the field of IT. The unit covers number systems, logic, relations, functions, quadratic equations, quadratic functions, simultaneous equations, polynomial equations, exponential functions, logarithmic functions, coordinate geometry and matrices. The unit provides an opportunity to learn statistics and equip learners with the descriptive and analytical methods for dealing with variability in observed data. It covers graphical presentation of data, descriptive statistics, index numbers, correlation and regression, time series, probability and statistical inference.
