F18GD Mathematics for Direct Entrants

Dr Robert Weston

Course co-ordinator(s): Dr Robert Weston (Edinburgh).

Aims:

This is a second level module aimed at students entering directly into the second year of a Mathematics degree. It is designed to assist students to get to grips with second year Mathematics, by reviewing material from first year that they may have not covered in their school syllabus. The precise topics covered will vary from student to student, depending on background. For this reason much of the course will be self-taught by directed reading, handout material etc., backed up by direct teaching in small groups.
