The dissertation will entail investigating a topic in an area of the Mathematical Sciences under the guidance of a dissertation supervisor.
This will culminate in a written dissertation with a word limit of 7,500 words, which usually equates to 25-35 pages.
These will usually take place in the final two weeks of Hilary Term.
The presentation does not count towards the final assessment of the project, however, it will give you an opportunity to practice your presentation skills which will prove useful in your later careers.
It may be that you choose to base your essay on a mathematician who is particularly relevant to your favourite field of mathematics.
Alternatively, you may choose to base a paper on a mathematician whose have a significant impact on the world.PDF Developing Understanding of the Chain Rule, Implicit Differentiation, and Related Rates: Towards a Hypothetical Learning Trajectory Rooted in Nested Multivariation, Haley Paige Jeppson PDF Secondary Preservice Mathematics Teachers' Curricular Reasoning, Kimber Anne Mathis PDF Addressing Pre-Service Teachers' Misconceptions About Confidence Intervals, Kiya Lynn Eliason PDF How Teacher Questions Affect the Development of a Potential Hybrid Space in a Classroom with Latina/o Students, Casandra Helen Job PDF Teacher Graphing Practices for Linear Functions in a Covariation-Based College Algebra Classroom, Konda Jo Luckau PDF Principles of Productivity Revealed from Secondary Mathematics Teachers' Discussions Around the Productiveness of Teacher Moves in Response to Teachable Moments, Kylie Victoria Palsky PDF Curriculum Decisions and Reasoning of Middle School Teachers, Anand Mikel Bernard PDF Teacher Response to Instances of Student Thinking During Whole Class Discussion, Rachel Marie Bernard PDF Kyozaikenkyu: An In-Depth Look into Japanese Educators' Daily Planning Practices, Matthew David Melville PDF Analysis of Differential Equations Applications from the Coordination Class Perspective, Omar Antonio Naranjo Mayorga PDF The Principles of Effective Teaching Student Teachershave the Opportunity to Learn in an Alternative Student Teaching Structure, Danielle Rose Divis PDF Teacher Participation and Motivation in Professional Development, Krystal A.Hill PDF Student Evaluation of Mathematical Explanations in an Inquiry-Based Mathematics Classroom, Ashley Burgess Hulet PDF English Learners' Participation in Mathematical Discourse, Lindsay Marie Merrill PDF Mathematical Interactions between Teachers and Students in the Finnish Mathematics Classroom, Paula Jeffery Prestwich PDF Parents and the Common Core State Standards for Mathematics, Rebecca Anne Roberts PDF Examining the Effects of College Algebra on Students' Mathematical Dispositions, Kevin Lee Watson PDF Problems Faced by Reform Oriented Novice Mathematics Teachers Utilizing a Traditional Curriculum, Tyler Joseph Winiecke PDF Academic and Peer Status in the Mathematical Life Stories of Students, Carol Ann Wise PDF The Effect of Students' Mathematical Beliefs on Knowledge Transfer, Kristen Adams PDF Language Use in Mathematics Textbooks Written in English and Spanish, Kailie Ann Bertoch PDF Teachers' Curricular Reasoning and MKT in the Context of Algebra and Statistics, Kolby J.All persons copying this information are expected to adhere to the terms and constraints invoked by each author's copyright.In most cases, these works may not be reposted without the explicit permission of the copyright holder.You will be notified of which project you have been allocated at the start of week 5.Each student is required to give an oral presentation to their supervisors and at least one other person with some knowledge of the field of the dissertation.Each topic will be accompanied by a short abstract outlining the project with details on necessary pre-requisite knowledge and the maximum number of students who will be able to take each topic.You will be asked to complete an online form, ranking 6 of the topics.It is expected that students embarking on a dissertation will be working on it over Christmas vacation, Hilary Term and Easter vacation for submission in early Trinity Term.Following the Dissertation Information Session, a list of potential dissertation topics will be published below.
