Our approach to teaching Mathematics
Mathematical Sciences is a thriving, friendly department of around 50 permanent staff with an annual intake of about 130 Single Honours undergraduates plus many Joint Honours students. The department is situated on the Science Site to the South of the City Centre, within easy reach of all the colleges and is close to the University Library.
Lectures and tutorials
Most of the teaching in mathematics consists of 50 minute lectures (12 per week on average), supplemented by tutorials. The tutorials, held in small groups in the first year, are informal and provide an opportunity to raise any questions you may have. As a single honours student you will have at least three tutorials per week during each of the first two years. We will monitor your progress carefully. Problems are set in lectures on a weekly basis, and your marked solutions may form the topic of discussion in a tutorial or problem class. You will be encouraged to work with other students, and to make use of the University's library and computing resources.
