DESCRIPTION - summary of the module content

This independent research project gives you the chance to showcase the skills you have developed throughout your degree programme. It consists of a piece of work in an area of the mathematical sciences that you will choose yourself from a provided list. Using your independent learning skills, you will undertake the project individually, supervised by a member of staff. There will be a range of projects for you to choose from: some involve working on a practical problem, some involve developing or using computer programmes and packages, and others involve reviewing a theoretical area or tackling a theoretical problem.

 

AIMS - intentions of the module

The aim is to extend the knowledge you have acquired so far on your degree programme and to strengthen your skills in research and report writing. You will be able to exercise more autonomy on this research project than in more formal modules.
 

INTENDED LEARNING OUTCOMES (ILOs) (see assessment section below for how ILOs will be assessed)

On successful completion of this module, you should be able to:


Module Specific Skills and Knowledge:
1 work independently and creatively on a substantial piece of work in an area of the mathematical sciences of their own particular interest.
Discipline Specific Skills and Knowledge:
2 appreciate the inter-relationships between this area and many other fields of the mathematical sciences.
Personal and Key Transferable / Employment Skills and Knowledge:
3 demonstrate strengthened skills in report writing, task management, independent research, and presentation;
