Mathematics Project

Module code: MA4504

In this module you will have the chance to conduct a research project and produce a structured report on your chosen area of mathematics. You will undertake this project, with continued guidance from your supervisor, and demonstrate the ability to research relevant literature, and communicate and analyse the results of the project. You will establish the lines of enquiry to be followed and produce an interim report, demonstrating both progress and a detailed plan of the further steps needed to complete the work. You will then complete the project work planned and produce a substantial Mathematics dissertation.
