    The content of this unit will be a guided study of some area of mathematics that enhances and extends the mathematics units undertaken during the first 3 years of the degree. The student will work closely with a member of the mathematics and statistics staff who will guide the students reading and progress. The specific area of study will depend upon the student?s expressed interests and the availability of staff supervision in the area. The supervision by the staff member could include a series of lectures by the staff member; reading assignments and reporting on books or papers; or other modes of guided learning. Possible topics could include: Mathematical Biology or Biochemistry; Mathematics of Shape and Symmetry; Mathematical Modelling with Differential Equations; Cryptography; Error Correcting Codes; Mathematical Physics; Computational Mathematics; Mathematical Analysis of Algorithms; and Cosmology.

    Learning Outcomes

    On successful completion of this unit, students will be able to:

    1. Develop the habit of life-long learning;

    2. Formulate and carry out a plan for independent study and research;

    3. Apply mathematical ideas to the student?s other studies or interests; and

    4. Interpret and assess the real-life implications of these applications.
