Mathematics at university: more than facts and formulae - MU4762

Middlesex University

At this taster day you will discover how mathematics at university is much more than a toolkit of facts, formulae and techniques. You will be given a short lecture which will take a mathematical idea, examine its background and show how it can be taken further.

The day will also include a session showing how computers can help us explore mathematical ideas and solve problems, a session demonstrating the application of mathematics, a discussion of concepts and problems arising from the lecture with mathematics staff, and a chance to ask questions.
