What students said about these units:
Units KMA153 Data Handling & Statistics 1, KMA272 Mathematics IV
(Introductory Applied Statistics) and KMA165 Mathematics in Life Sciences
I really enjoyed this unit as the assessment,I feel, was fair and the
subject taught in an easily followed and methodical way. It was easy to
gain understanding and if I had any queries, the staff were readily
available to help. Well done.
I now have a basic unerstanding of an area I knew nothing about
The progression from one unit to another was good...well-integrated.
Although statistics is not my interest, this course was easy to understand.
I enjoy it very much.
I was apprehensive about this unit as I don't have any prior knowledge
and numbers in general are not my strong suit. However, Des taught it
well, and in a way which made even the most complicated concepts eventually
become clear...the practical nature of the assignments meant I actually had
to understand the concepts, rather than just cram for an exam.
Unit: KMA374 Mathematics VIb, Intermediate Applied Statistics
...I have really enjoyed studying this unit, more so than any other math=
unit... in fact it ranks as one of the best I have done at this University.
Probably the most interesting and well presented maths unit I've had.
