					AIMS and LEARNING OUTCOMES for MATHEMATICS PROGRAMMES

We apologise that the new Module Specification is not available for this module. However,
below you will find, using the table and the list explaining the codes A1 – D8, information
regarding the learning outcomes.

1. Educational Aims of the Programme
The programme aims:
1. To equip students with the technical appreciation, skills and knowledge appropriate to
graduates in Mathematics.
2. To develop students' facilities of rigorous reasoning and precise expression.
3. To develop students' capabilities to formulate and solve mathematical problems.
4. To develop in students appreciation of recent developments in Mathematics, and of the links
between the theory of Mathematics and its practical application.
5. To develop in students a logical, mathematical approach to solving problems.
6. To develop in students an enhanced capacity for independent thought and work.
7. To ensure students are competent in the use of information technology, and are familiar with
computers, together with the relevant software.
8. To provide students with opportunities to study advanced topics in Mathematics, engage in
research at some level, and develop communication and personal skills.
9. For the programme involving a year in industry, to enable students to gain awareness of the
application of technical concepts in the workplace.

2. Programme Outcomes
The programme provides opportunities for students to develop and demonstrate knowledge
and understanding, qualities, skills and other attributes in the following areas. Items A5, B4,
B6, B7 and D1-D7 are generic learning outcomes and the remaining ones subject specific.

A. Knowledge and Understanding of:
A1. Core mathematical understanding in the principles of calculus, algebra, mathematical
methods, discrete mathematics, analysis and linear algebra.
A2. Statistical understanding in the subjects of probability and inference.
A3. Information technology skills as relevant to mathematicians.
A4. Methods and techniques of mathematics.
A5. The role of logical mathematical argument and deductive reasoning.

B. Intellectual Skills :
B1. Ability to demonstrate a reasonable understanding of Mathematics.
B2. Ability to demonstrate skill in calculation and manipulation of the material written within
the programme.
B3. Ability to apply a range of concepts and principles in various contexts.
B4. Ability for logical argument.
B5. Ability to demonstrate skill in solving mathematical problems by various appropriate
methods.
B6. Ability in relevant computer skills and usage.
B7. Ability to work with relatively little guidance.
C. Subject-specific Skills :
C1. Ability to demonstrate knowledge of key mathematical concepts and topics, both explicitly
and by applying them to the solution of problems.
C2. Ability to comprehend problems, abstract the essentials of problems and formulate them
mathematically and in symbolic form so as to facilitate their analysis and solution.
C3. Ability to use computational and more general IT facilities as an aid to mathematical
processes.
C4. Ability to present their mathematical arguments and the conclusions from them with
clarity and accuracy.

D. Transferable Skills:
D1. Problem-solving skills, relating to qualitative and quantitative information.
D2. Communications skills.
D3. Numeracy and computational skills.
D4. Information-retrieval skills, in relation to primary and secondary information sources,
including information retrieval through on- line computer searches.
D5. Information technology skills such as word-processing and spreadsheet use, internet
communication, etc.
D6. Time-management and organisational skills, as evidenced by the ability to plan and
implement efficient and effective modes of working.
D7. Study skills needed for continuing professional development.
