Further information on descriptions Description: Aims:
To learn new mathematical topics or to apply new or previously acquired knowledge.
The project description will state the mathematical material to be studied or the type of application.

Learning Outcomes:

* To be able to learn independently or to transfer knowledge into unfamiliar situations in a spirit of critical enquiry.
* To understand the requirements for academic writing, including referencing and the appropriate use of graphs, diagrams and tables.
* To demonstrate academic writing skills within the production of a project dissertation.
* To be able to give a presentation of the project work.
(All of the above will be taught, facilitated and assessed.)
