Course Description

The guiding philosophy of the course is that the university-based sessions are intended to support the students? independent study. To succeed, students will be expected to be highly motivated independent learners with the commitment and enthusiasm to engage with a challenging subject in a short and intense period of time. No course in mathematics can possibly cover everything that might be encountered in the classroom and the course is designed with this in mind. Many students joining the course my feel themselves very rusty on various bits of the mathematics syllabus and others may feel that although they can recall all sorts of random things, they cannot necessarily make sense of them. The course concentrates both on stressing mathematics as a process which enables students to apply knowledge even in the most unusual contexts, and on those areas of mathematics which are known to pose particular problems. Even for students confident of understanding the mathematics they will learn, we hope to provide new insights and a deeper appreciation of the fabulous world of mathematics. The taught modules cover pure mathematics, statistics, mechanics and the pedagogy of mathematics as well as placing mathematics in an historical and cultural context to enable student to appreciate how we have arrived at the body of mathematical knowledge we now consider essential for engaging in the modern world.
