The Prerequisite courses are Basic Mathematics and Linear Algebra, which are offered in this degree program. A knowledge of linear independence, basis, matrix operation, inverses, inequalities, vector spaces, convex sets, and graph plotting is essential. These concepts and skills are generally covered in the pre-requisite course (or equivalents) mentioned above and constitute important background knowledge required to undertake this module. A basic understanding of these and related concepts, and reasonable competence in related manipulative skills (such as matrix and graphical representations and associated algebraic manipulations), are essential background knowledge for this module. Familiarity with these basic concepts and skills, which are assumed in this module, must be secured first before proceeding with the module.
