Choice of module

Choice of module

You are most likely to find a suitable module under Ancillary modules (MATH6*). These are as follows:

MATH6103: Rapid introduction to calculus a little above A-level standard suitable for students who do not have a good Maths A Level or equivalent

MATH6105: Requires a grade A in A-level Mathematics and continues from A-level. Aimed mainly at students studying physical science (in particular Chemistry)

MATH6106: Continues from MATH6105, which is the normal pre-requisite

[MATH1403: Only available to BASc students]

MATH6201: Intended mainly for Chemistry students who have taken MATH6105/MATH6106

MATH6202: Intended mainly for Physics students who have taken maths modules PHAS1245/1246 and 2246

MATH6301: Intended mainly for Computer Science students, pre-requisite A-level Mathematics

MATH6401: Intended mainly for Statistics students or SSEES students with an A grade in A-level Mathematics

MATH6402: Intended mainly for Statistics students or SSEES students, following on from MATH6401.

MATH6403: Intended mainly for second years Statistics students (following on from MATH6401/2) or Economics students (following on from ECON1004/8)

MATH6404: Intended for second or third year Statistics or Economics students, who would normally have taken MATH6403.

MATH6501: A slightly post A-level module, requiring some background in A-level type Maths

MATH6801: Logic for third year students from outside mathematics department with good results in previous maths modules (normally 70%+ in MATH6403 or MATH6404 taken)

It is also possible that you might find a suitable honours course. However, please be aware that: 

(i) honours modules tend to be mathematically sophisticated and demanding. 

(ii) places on these modules may be very limited.

Students from other Departments - Ancillary Registration

This applies to students from departments other than mathematics who are going to take a mathematics module in 2017-2018. Timetables, syllabuses and Mathematics Dept module forms can be found on the maths web-page, or you can ask in the Mathematics office (Room 610). In all cases you will also need to choose  the module on Portico (if it is not already there as a compulsory module).

1. Students who do NOT need to complete any Mathematics dept procedures

You do not need to do any Mathematics departmental procedures if any of the following hold: 

a) Your mathematics module(s) is/are compulsory;

b) Anyone who has been approved by the teaching department (Mathematics) on Portico;

c) You are a second or third year from Economics choosing MATH6403 as advised by your home department;

d) You are a first year student from Chemistry choosing MATH6105 / MATH6106 as advised by your home department.

2. Students who should complete a mathematics department form, but do not necessarily need to discuss it

If (i) you wish to take one of the following standard choices - (a) MATH6103 or (b) MATH6105 and/or MATH6106 and are sure you have the right prerequisites (neither under-qualified nor overqualified);

or (ii) you are a SSEES student choosing one of the standard options MATH6103 or MATH6401 and are sure you have the right prerequisites (neither under-qualified nor overqualified);

then you can simply fill in the Maths form and (preferably) e-mail it to math.ugteaching AT with subject line ANCILLARY OPTIONS or hand it in at the Maths office (Room 610) without further discussion; then enter the module(s) on PORTICO. It is important that you include your e-mail address so we can discuss any queries with you.

Normal prerequisites for these modules
MATH6103: A-level grade C or D or E (or possibly B)
MATH6105: grade A or possibly B in A-level Maths, OR good result in MATH6101 or MATH6103 in previous year.
MATH6106: MATH6105.
MATH6401: grade A or possibly B in A-level Maths (SSEES students).

Students with grade B at A-level Maths or those with alternative qualifications should discuss their choice.

3. Students who should come for advice in Mathematics

All those not included under 1 or 2 above. This is particularly important if you wish to take a Maths honours module.

Please first fill in a mathematics departmental form with your details and bring that with you to one of the advice sessions. If you do not do this, your choice may not be approved.

Please come to Room 707 in the Mathematics Department (7th floor, 25 Gordon Street) with your completed form at one of the following times:

Tuesday 26 September 2017  2.00 - 4.00
Thursday 28 September 2017  2.00 - 4.00

You then need to enter the module on PORTICO

Please note that all choices of mathematics modules will need to be approved on PORTICO by both the Maths department and by your home department before your module registration is confirmed.
