HE Mathematics Curriculum Summit
|A report the outlining the debate, talks and discussions, with recommendations of current priorities for curriculum development in mathematical sciences resulting from the HE Mathematics Curriculum Summit held in January 2011.
|Developing graduate skills in HE mathematics programmes: Case studies of successful practice
|A series of short case studies providing examples of ways in which specific graduate skills have been successfully developed through curricular initiatives.
|Further work developing graduate skills in HE mathematics programmes
|A further series of short case studies on approaches to developing graduate skills within the mathematical sciences.
|Graduates’ views on the undergraduate mathematics curriculum
|Report of a survey to understand graduates’ perspectives on the undergraduate mathematics curriculum. The survey was undertaken by Loughborough University.
|Employer engagement in undergraduate mathematics
|Short case studies describing work focused upon developing graduate and employability skills by involving employers in the curriculum.
|Student-centred approaches in mathematics
|Case studies describing work in the areas of student support, transition to university, retention and inclusive curricula, all from a ‘student-centred’ perspective.
|Good practice on inclusive curricula in the mathematical sciences
|Reports from academic staff, professional support staff, disability researchers and students on specific accessibility challenges in the mathematical sciences beyond those usually considered in generic good practice advice and guidance.
|Maths Arcade: Stretching and supporting mathematical thinking
|A guide to setting up and running Maths Arcades, an innovative support initiative, along with case studies of their implementation at several universities.
|Being a professional mathematician
|Resources to encourage students’ awareness of what it means to be a ‘professional mathematician’ along with guidance as to how these ideas might be embedded within the undergraduate curriculum.
|History of mathematics in the higher education curriculum
|A guide to using history of mathematics within various contexts in higher education with a particular emphasis upon a mechanism to engage students with the subject.
|Media enhanced teaching and learning
|Case studies and evidence of the use of using recordings in teaching, learning and assessment and their impact upon student learning.
|Mapping university mathematics assessment practices
|A comprehensive report of a survey, along with a number of supporting case studies of current practice, exploring the potential for using alternative forms of assessment within the mathematical sciences.
|Teaching problem-solving in undergraduate mathematics
|A good practice guide, which contains a number of very usable problems, on developing, teaching and assessing problem solving.
|A pilot for a shared on-line statistics advisory service
|A report of a pilot initiative to offer statistics support to students at several universities via a shared online service.
|Industrial problem solving for higher education
|An Industrial Problem Solving for Higher Education (IPSHE) wiki, developed by the Department of Engineering Mathematics at the University of Bristol which maintains a list of case studies from real, recent industrial and scientific research problems serving as a basis for group projects at all levels of undergraduate study.
