MAS201 and MAS202
Aims/Description: This unit will provide students with opportunities to improve their transferable skills by working in groups of (normally) four students to investigate a mathematical project topic. Students will be expected to register for SOM369 in pre-formed groups of four. With the aid of the Library and the internet each group will produce a (single) written account of the group's investigations into the topic, and contribute to an oral presentation of their work. Topics will be proposed by members of staff, but groups may propose their own. The module Coordinator will provide guidance about working in groups, and on appropriate techniques for the written and oral presentation of mathematical topics.
Restrictions on availability: This unit is only available to Level 3 students on MASU01, MASU02, MASU05, MASU11, and ERASMUS students. It cannot be taken by MASU02 students in their 4th year.
