More about this course
Learning activities include lectures, tutorials, seminars, computer-based learning, case studies and investigations.
You'll learn how to apply mathematical processes in problem solving, developing arguments with appropriate conclusions and an evaluation of their limitations. You'll also formulate complex problems and analyse the results in context. These skills will be developed by learning activities such as problem solving classes, case studies, data-driven analysis, independent research and study.
All mathematics and computing modules will have presence on the University virtual learning environment. Apart from standard information such as modules, staff contact details, surgery/office hours and regular notice boards, it will also include, where appropriate, online submission of assessments, marking and feedback; online quizzes, reusable learning objects, e-portfolios and social networking tools.
Further in the course the specific local software will be used such as Computer Algebra packages (MAPLE), SQL, ORACLE and programming language (e.g. Python) to enhance students learning.
Example Year 1 modules include:
Calculus and Linear Algebra
Data Analysis and Financial Mathematics
Mathematical Proofs and Structure
Example Year 2 modules include:
Statistical Methods and Modelling Markets
Example Year 3 modules include:
Academic Independent Study
