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.

Key features of the course Explores fundamental questions about our physical and economic world Extends analytical and model building skills applicable to a variety of contexts Develops essential skills to solve real problems and make sound judgments – from everyday choices about personal finances, to high-level strategic decisions in employment Educational aims This programme aims to provide you with: the mathematical and economics skills and knowledge required for a range of jobs in government, business, accountancy, banking, management and administration, the voluntary sector and teaching a good grounding in a broad range of mathematical, statistical and computational skills a good basic knowledge of economic theory together with an understanding of economic issues the skills and knowledge to engage in economic debate and to assess different kinds of evidence and their usefulness in relation to economic theories. Teaching, learning and assessment methods Knowledge and understanding are acquired at all levels through published distance-learning materials, including specially written study materials, study guides, assignments and project guides; through a range of multimedia material; through specified work using computer software; through work on original texts; and through feedback on assignments. Cognitive skills and processes are introduced at a simple level in the mathematical sciences at OU level 1, primarily via material specifically designed to develop these skills in a progressive way. Although modules at OU levels 2 and 3 continue this work, there is significant variation among modules in the degree as to which skills are taught explicitly in the study materials. Significant teaching is, however, maintained through the assessment strategy and tutor feedback. In addition, discipline-specific skills from economics and the mathematical sciences will be developed and assessed. The combination of skills that will be taught and learned depends partly on the choice of optional modules. Several of the practical and/or professional skills (listed above) refer to the vocational relevance of the degree. Whilst not occupationally specific, all teaching and assessment strategies will help you develop knowledge and skills that are transferable to the workplace, whatever combination of modules you take.

You will have the opportunity to learn a broad range of mathematical topics that will develop your knowledge and strengthen your understanding of the subject. Learning is through a mix of lectures, tutorials and assignments with a significant level of personal study and, as teaching groups are not large, you can be sure of excellent support and attention from teaching staff. You will also have the opportunity to pursue an area of personal interest through submission of a dissertation in your final year. About the course Group sizes are relatively small with an average of about 20 students per class so you will receive excellent support and attention from teaching staff. During your studies you are not required to specialise in any particular aspect or application of mathematics, though there is an opportunity to do so if desired. Additional topics included on the course, which you will study mainly during your final year, have been chosen because they introduce you to areas of current interest and lead you naturally towards research topics. Special features The department is relatively small and friendly and offers enthusiastic teaching and support throughout the course of your studies. What you will learn The degree contains a broad mix of mathematics. Topics similar to those found on A-level courses are included to a greater depth and with a greater degree of specialisation as well as topics that will be new to you. You will enhance your understanding and skills in both pure and applied mathematics and computational areas of mathematics. As well as expanding your knowledge and understanding of mathematics you will develop your skills of abstract, logical thinking and reasoned argument.
