Mathematics - Open Day presentation

  1. 1. MathematicsJorj Kowszun and Catherine Richard
  2. 2. Mathematics strand aims to:• cover fundamental concepts of mathematics• develop abilities in applying mathematics – mathematical modelling• introduce appropriate software• develop logical thinking• develop communication skills
  3. 3. Knowledge and understanding of mathematical• theories and concepts• structures and arguments• methods and techniques• approaches to problem solving• modelling techniques
  4. 4. Structure: joint honours
  5. 5. Structure: mathematics• Level 4 – two year-long modules (20 credits)• Level 5 – two year-long modules (20 credits)• Level 6 – semester 1: two 10 credit modules• Level 6 – semester 2: two 10 credit modules
  6. 6. Level 4Mathematical Skills• Sequences, calculus, mathematical modelling• Introduces mathematical softwareDiscrete Mathematics and Algebra• Mathematical structures and proof• Sets, logic, functions, relations, groups, vectors
  7. 7. Level 5Mathematical Methods• Real analysis, multivariable calculus• Numerical methods, applicationsLinear Mathematics• Linear algebra: vectors, matrices, transformations• Linear analysis: function spaces, Laplace transforms, applications
  8. 8. Level 6‘Options’ – for example:• Topology• Complex functions• History & Philosophy• Graph Theory• Maths of Finance
  9. 9. Staff - currentJohn Taylor – maths strand leader• For 12 years was Head of School; authorJorj Kowszun• Former college Principal and consultantCatherine Richard• Experienced mathematician and educator+ several others on an occasional basis
  10. 10. Research• University and School – very successful (RAE)Our interests• diagrammatic reasoning systems and their applications in software engineering• understanding how students learn university mathematics
  11. 11. Outcomes: graduates who …• have expertise in mathematics• are familiar with applying knowledge in a variety of contexts using appropriate tools• have developed professional and communication skills• as a result are highly employable
