Discrete Mathematics ICT101 Assessment 3 

Discrete Mathematics ICT101 Assessment 3.


Assessment Type: Group Assignment 

Purpose of the assessment:

To develop a plan for a real-world example of an application in information technology from the one of the topics given below. This assessment contributes to the various learning outcomes of your Bachelor of IT degree.

Assessment Task: 

In the initial part of assignment, the group of students’ will be tested on their skills on writing literature review of a topic you have learnt in the Discrete Mathematics (ICT101) course in the week 1 to 6. Students need to read at least 3 articles or books on this topic especially with application to Information Technology and give detail review of those. Student will also identify one application of information Technology related to the topic in which he/she is interested and write a complete account of that interest.

Student group will be exploring and analysis the applications which are identified by each group member, and they must recognize an application that can be programmed into computer. Each group must sketch a plane to draw a flow-chart and algorithm. Use some inputs to test the algorithm (Give different trace table for each input) and identify any problem in the algorithm. Suggest a plane to rectify or explain why it can be rectified. Each group must write one report on its findings.

Student can choose group member by his/her own but should be within his/her tutorial group. Students can choose one from the following Topic. However, after deciding on the topic to work on, consult with your tutor.

The topic student group can choose from are:

• Control Structure algorithm

• Truth table

• Quantifying a Predicate

• One-to-one Function

• Recursive formula

• Two’s complement

The written report must have the following sections:

1. Introduction

2. Proper reference of at least three articles or books

3. Write detail review of those articles or books related to the topic student chooses

4. Identify one application in Information Technology in which student is interested. Write a complete account of that interest

5. Description of why students choose this application

6. Give a complete plane to implement the application into a computer program with use of flow-chart

7. Write an appropriate algorithm

8. Use at least two inputs to test the algorithm. Group need to give a trace table for each input.

9. Conclusion

10. Short statement about contributions/Reflections from each group member

11. References

Deadline to submit written report: Week 11 Sunday (18th Sep 2021), 11.59pm via Moodle.

The report must be: Discrete Mathematics ICT101 Assessment 3 

1. Word or pdf document (3 to 4 pages long)

2. Size: A4

3. Use Assignment Cover Page (download from Moodle) with your details and signature

4. Single space

Deduction, Late Submission and Extension

Late submission penalty: – 5% of the total available marks per calendar day unless an extension is approved. For extension application procedure, please refer to Section 3.3 of the Subject Outline.


Please read Section 3.4 Plagiarism and Referencing, from the Subject Outline. Below is part of the statement:

“Students plagiarising run the risk of severe penalties ranging from a reduction through to 0 marks for a first offence for a single assessment task, to exclusion from KOI in the most serious repeat cases. Exclusion has serious visa implications.”

“Authorship is also an issue under Plagiarism – KOI expects students to submit their own original work in both assessment and exams, or the original work of their group in the case of a group project. All students agree to a statement of authorship when submitting assessments online via Moodle, stating that the work submitted is their own original work. The following are examples of academic misconduct and can attract severe penalties:

• Handing in work created by someone else (without acknowledgement), whether copied from another student, written by someone else, or from any published or electronic source, is fraud, and falls under the general Plagiarism guidelines.

• Students who willingly allow another student to copy their work in any assessment may be considered to assisting in copying/cheating, and similar penalties may be applied. ”
