This new degree course is shared equally between the School of Mathematics and the School of Education.
Each student has two academic advisers: one in each discipline. The programme is designed to give you equal experience in studying postgraduate level Mathematics and Mathematics Education. Apart from some compulsory lecture material and a choice of lecture courses, you will write two short dissertations (from a choice of topics): one in a specialised area of Mathematics, and the other involving a small-scale research study in a topic of your interest, in Mathematics Education.
In the School of Education you will take two taught modules to introduce you to mathematics education. In the first module you will read and discuss theories of mathematical learning, curriculum and pedagogy across the educational levels, as well as acquaint yourself with elements from philosophy, history/epistemology, psychology and sociology that influence mathematics education research. The second module will provide you with sufficient grounding in the methodology of qualitative enquiry to be able to start to do research in your own specialist area, for the assignment for this module and for the dissertation.
In the School of Mathematics the first semester contains a module to help you carry out independent study, in critical reading, writing, and mathematical typesetting. The other taught modules change from year to year. They cover the wide range of research interests of the lecturing staff. From pure mathematics we offer lectures such as number theory and representation theory. In applied mathematics we offer topics ranging from financial maths to dynamical meteorology. All lecturers carry out research and both Schools were highly rated for their research by the 2008 Research Assessment Exercise.
