Best Part time BSc Degrees in Mathematics 2017. BSc in Mathematics and its Learning (Honours) Mathematics education has long been a government priority. This unique degree course will give you an understanding of how people learn mathematics, and an insight into different teaching approaches. Designed primarily with teachers – or aspiring teachers – in mind, it will develop your knowledge and understanding of the teaching of mathematics and statistics, and broaden your ideas about what it means to learn and use mathematics. Key features of the course Gain a good grounding in mathematics (pure and applied), and in statistics Focus your studies on either mathematics or statistics as you progress Ideal preparation for a career in teaching mathematics Contributes to membership of the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) Teaching, learning and assessment methods The Open University uses specially prepared teaching texts, which include examples, self-assessment questions (SAQs) and exercises. These are supported by a number of components that vary from module to module, such as set books, multi-media (e.g.video), computer and/or web-based resources. You’ll work independently with the teaching materials but are encouraged to form self-help groups with other students, communicating face to face, by telephone, email and online forums. Tutors support your learning in tutorials and day schools organised regionally. Modules also provide study guides, assignment and project guides and specimen examination papers (mathematics and statistics modules only). Feedback on assignments provides individual tuition and guidance. Modules at higher levels build on the foundations developed in recommended prerequisite modules at lower levels. Your knowledge and understanding is regularly assessed via tutor-marked assignments (TMAs); sometimes by multiple-choice computer-marked assignments (CMAs/iCMAs) within modules; and by written examinations or other end-of-module assessment procedures. The TMAs ask for well-communicated answers, involving applications of concepts in new situations, clear and rigorous mathematical arguments, and notational precision. Assignments for higher-level modules assess students’ improved skills and mathematical maturity, by giving somewhat less guidance and requiring a more integrative approach. Where modules have CMAs, these will require you to achieve breadth as well as depth of understanding. Tutors mark your TMAs guided by marking schemes with specimen solutions, and provide written feedback to you on your performance. Fees We believe cost shouldn’t be a barrier to achieving your potential. That’s why we work hard to keep the cost of study as low as possible and have a wide range of flexible ways to pay to help spread, or even reduce, the cost. Fees for study commencing in academic year 2014/2015 are: Fees are paid on a module-by-module basis – you won't have to pay for the whole of your qualification upfront. If like most OU students studying part time, you study an average of 60 credits a year – you’ll study for six years to complete a degree. Our typical fee for 60 credits is £2,632. Our current fee is £5,264 – based on 120 credits of study – which is equivalent to a year's full-time study. The total cost of your chosen qualification currently starts from £15,792 based on our current fees. NB: Prices are subject to change. How long does it take? Part time – 6-8 years Full time – 3 years Time limit – 16 years Career relevance If you’re thinking about teaching mathematics, or you’re already in teaching and want to improve and update your skills, this degree course is an excellent choice. Mathematical skills and knowledge are also sought after in fields such as finance, accountancy, engineering, science, defence, the pharmaceuticals industry and business. Other career areas directly related to mathematics include: banking bioinformatics insurance tax investments stockbroking/trading retail economics market research pensions quantitative analysis/risk analysis Entry requirements There are no formal entry requirements to study this qualification. You will however need to be proficient in English, to an IELTS standard of 6.0. If you are unsure you will be able to take a free English test as part of the registration process.

Best Part time BSc Degrees in Mathematics 2017. Mathematics and physics are complementary subjects and make a sensible combination to study at university. There are many examples of unexpected discoveries resulting from interaction between the two disciplines. Ideas developed in particle physics have led to advances in topology - one of the purest branches of mathematics. Advances in the understanding of chaos provide another example. Ideas from the theory are being applied increasingly in the modelling of complex physical systems such as the atmosphere and lasers. The Warwick joint courses (BSc and MMathPhys) are now among the best-established in the country with around 50 students starting each year. The courses include a significant proportion of modules from both contributing departments designed primarily for joint degree students. It is possible at the end of the First Year to transfer to either of the single subject degrees. Years one and two are common to the two courses. Warwick is strong in research in a number of branches of mathematics and physics, and is well-placed to offer accounts of those developments likely to be of most interest to joint degree students. These include non-linear systems (there are modules on the weather, modelling of biological systems, and complexity theory) and theoretical physics. YEAR ONE (BSc and MMathPhys) In the first year, all students take the modules in the Core list. To give you an idea about the way the degree course is structured in the first year, the number in brackets after each module title indicates the number of lectures you will attend e.g. (15L) indicates a 15-lecture module. Mathematics (core): Sets and Numbers (30L), Mathematical Analysis (60L), Linear Algebra (30L), Differential Equations (30L) Physics (core): Electricity and Magnetism (30L), Physics Foundations (30L), Quantum Phenomena (15L), Classical Mechanics and Relativity (30L), Thermal Physics I (15L), Programming Workshop (15L) Options Students may take any of the following for additional credit: Introduction to Geometry (15L), Introduction to Abstract Algebra (15L), Introduction to Astronomy (15L), Programming for Scientists (30L), Particle Physics (15L), Probability (15 or 30L). YEAR TWO (BSc and MMathPhys) Students take the core modules and at least eight modules from the lists of options. Mathematics (core): Mathematical Analysis III (30L), Vector Analysis (30L), Partial Differential Equations (30L), Variational Principles (15L) Physics (core): Electromagnetic Theory and Optics (20L), Methods of Mathematical Physics (20L), Quantum Mechanics and its Applications (40L) Thermal Physics II (20L) Physics of Fluids (20L) Mathematics Options: Algebra I, Algebra II, Metric Spaces, Geometry, Differentiation, Introduction to Systems Biology, Theory of Ordinary Differential Equations Physics Options: Stars, Geophysics, Hamiltonian Mechanics, Computational Physics, Global Warming, The Physics of Electrical Power Generation, Experimental Particle Physics Options from other Departments: Modern Foreign Languages, Business School Modules, Introduction to Secondary School Teaching YEAR THREE (BSc) In addition to a module on Communicating Science, students select about 12 modules (the exact number depends on the length of the modules) from: Mathematics Options: Complex Analysis, Group Theory, Algebra II, Differentiation, Metric Spaces, Measure Theory, Functional Analysis I, Fluid Dynamics, Geometry of Curves and Surfaces, Control Theory, Topics in Mathematical Biology, Theory of Partial Differential Equations, Continuum Mechanics Physics Options: The Standard Model, Quantum Physics of Atoms, Condensed Matter Physics, Electrodynamics, Plasma Electrodynamics, Astrophysics, Cosmology, Galaxies, Weather and the Environment, Statistical Physics, Non-linearity and Chaos, Physics in Medicine, Magnetic Resonance Options from other Departments: Business Studies; Scientific Method; Modern Foreign Languages The list of options given above may change slightly from year to year and some options may not be available in every year.
