Teaching

In Levels 1 and 2 teaching is initially through a combination of lectures and tutorials. These continue in Levels 3 and 4, supplemented by workshops and computer laboratory sessions. Increasingly you will be required to undertake directed independent study to broaden and deepen your understanding of the issues covered in the teaching.

We also teach the use of professional mathematical software packages in order to allow you to explore mathematics far beyond the limits of traditional teaching. This also prepares you for the way in which mathematicians work across various industries.

We also offer an annual series of industry guest lectures which you are encouraged to attend.

Assessment

Our assessment methods include:

  • examination
  • continuous assessment (essays, case studies, group projects)
  • homework
  • computer assignments
  • class tests
  • projects
  • essays
  • case studies

All of these will provide the basis for your final grade.
