  • Overview

    Credits: 15.0
    Overlap: None
    Prerequisite: None

    The module is concerned with solving problems rather than building up the theory of a particular area of
    mathematics. The problems are wide ranging with some emphasis on problems in pure mathematics and on problems
    that do not require knowledge of other undergraduate modules for their solution. Students will be given a
    selection of problems to work on and will be expected to use their own initiative and the library. However,
    hints are provided by staff in the timetabled sessions. Assessment is based on the solutions handed in,
    together with an oral examination.
