1. Preliminary Choice of Options 2013-2014
All students on Maths degrees who are not graduating this year are asked to make a premilinary choice of options for next year before the end of the Term 3 (7 June 2013).
This choice does not replace entering your choices on PORTICO. Neither does this commit you to these options, nor does it register you on them. However, your choice here may affect whether or not Maths modules run, size of rooms booked for lectures and gives you priority on a place on the Maths moudles you choose. Thus please make sure you do submit a preliminary choice.
2. Post Exam Courses
The Department of Mathematics is offering three courses in the period after most exams finish (21 May - 5 June). These are:
(i) Probability (3 days)
(ii) Python (3 days)
(iii) Mathematica (5 days)
Most of the courses take place in Room 500 (25 Gordon Street), and times are approximately 10.00-12.30 and 14.00-16.00.
The courses are not assessed and do not count towards your degree or appear on you academic record. There is no charge for these modules and they are open to all students in the Mathematics Department.
The registration deadline is Friday 17 May for Python and Mathematica and Monday 20 May for Probability.
3. 4th Year Project
If you are a 4th year MSci student reading for a Mathematics degree in 2013/2014, please note that your project choice should be finilised and agreed by the end of the summer term (7 June 2013).
Please also make sure you attend the LATEX training sessions on 23rd May at 10.00 in room 505 (25 Gordon Street) and 24th May at 10.00 in Public Cluster 105 (25 Gordon Street).
4. Departmental Staff-Student Consultative Committee
This committee provides a forum for students to raise and discuss issues relating to the department, the lectures and the degrees. The last meeting was on Wednesday 6 February 2013 (the draft minutes are now available).
5. Personal tutors
All current undergraduate students in the Maths department have a personal tutor. Except for first year students (where one of your academic tutors is also your personal tutor) the role of your personal tutor is not to help with mathematical problems, but is someone to whom you can go for general advice/help and who hould be able to provide you with a reference when required. Your personal tutor will also ask to see you periodically to discuss how you are getting on, and to fill in with you a brief report on your progress.
Formal matters such as change of degree, interruption, extenuating circumstances, certification of attendance, change of exam entries, resits, etc, will have to be discussed with the departmental tutor (me), but you may ike to discuss some of these things first with your personal tutor first.
You can find information about who is your personal tutor by looking on your portico record. Please let me know of any problems/discrepancies.
6. Mathematics Student Library
This is a small library of text-books in the department, available for borrowing, in Room 503. It is run by student librarians and the opening times are published soon after the start of term.
