Debits and Credits - Accounting
The difficulty with accounting has less to do with the math, as it does with its concepts. Now, there is no more difficult yet vital concept to understand than that of Debits and Credits. Debits and Credits are at the very heart of the 'double entry bookkeeping' that has been the foundation stone on which the financial world's accounting system has been built for well over 500 years. Now, given the length of time, is it any wonder that confusion has surrounded the concept of Debits and Credits

The paper discusses mathematical form generation as an academic methodology to develop new approaches to architectural design. The academic design studio ?Math objects? investigates the relationship between complex 3d-surfaces and mathematics in order to expand the formal repertoire of architecture. It claims that the process of form generation can be seen as an autonomous entity, which is independent from an overall strategy or any a priori meaning. Architecture has always originated from a co
Object Oriented Programming in C++
This course extends the student's basic procedural design and programming knowledge into the object oriented paradigm. The student will be expected to learn and apply the basic concepts of object oriented design and programming, i.e. abstraction, inheritance and polymorphism, in the context of the C++ language. Key software engineering principles such as decomposition and component re-use shall also be emphasised.
