Students undertake a research project in mathematics under the supervision of a member of staff. Credit value for this course can range between 6 and 24 units.

Learning Outcomes

Upon successful completion, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

On satisfying the requirements of this course, students will have the knowledge and skills to:

1. Explain the fundamental concepts of a chosen research topic and its role in modern mathematics and applied contexts.
2. Systematically identify relevant theory and concepts, relate these to appropriate methodologies and evidence, and draw appropriate conclusions.
3. Demonstrate capacity for mathematical reasoning through analysing, proving and explaining concepts from the chosen research area.
4. Engage in systematic discovery and critical review of appropriate and relevant information sources.
5. Communicate research concepts and contexts clearly and effectively both in writing and orally.

Indicative Assessment

Assessment will be based on a student-customised set of assessment tasks relevant to the research project: it usually includes an essay in the form of an in-depth survey article.
