Mathematics (with Education)

Our BSc Mathematics with Education programme will allow you to develop your interests across mathematics, while also focusing on teaching, learning and education. Mathematics has been proven useful in just about every field of human endeavour. It is used in science and exploration, in business and government, in industry and forecasting, in art and in banking. Our expert academics are enthusiastic and knowledgeable, guiding students through this rapidly developing subject. Active researchers, they conduct world-leading work and incorporate it into their teaching. In fact, over 87% of our mathematical sciences research outputs were judged as internationally excellent or world-leading (REF 2014), so you can be sure you’ll be learning in the most up-to-date of environments. Our Mathematics with Education course will give you the flexibility to combine modules on statistics, pure and applied mathematics with modules that look at the learning and teaching of mathematics, as well as the wider field of education research. The programme will provide you with an outstanding foundation, should you wish to progress onto our PGCE Primary or Secondary Teacher Training programmes. We pride ourselves on the personal attention our students receive, keeping seminar groups small and ensuring the relationships between staff and students are really strong. And you’ll be assigned an academic advisor; a lecturer who’ll help and guide you throughout your degree. You’ll get to know them well and, just as importantly, they’ll get to know you. **Course Structure** You’ll begin your degree by developing your existing mathematical knowledge, before moving onto more advanced subjects as the course progresses. In years two and three you’ll be able to focus your studies through our optional modules, which means you can tailor your degree programme around your particular interests. Some optional modules – in subjects including statistics – are available each year. **Year 1** The first year will develop your skills in calculus and other topics you may have covered at A-level, such as mechanics and probability. Modules on problem solving and how to present mathematical arguments will encourage you to develop ways of tackling unfamiliar problems while also providing an opportunity for group working. And modules on algebra and analysis will introduce important new concepts and ideas, which you will use in following years. **Year 2** Your second year will feature a combination of compulsory and optional modules. The compulsory modules will introduce you to exciting applications of mathematics, such as fluid flow and aerodynamics, while developing your understanding of the theories that underpin modern mathematics. You’ll also complete ‘Education in Action’, a compulsory module in which you’ll undertake a placement in a local school. In addition to the optional mathematics modules that you’ll be offered, you’ll have the opportunity to take modules lectured within other Schools at UEA. Recent popular choices have included programming and educational psychology. **Year 3** In your final year you’ll be able to choose from a range of modules covering topics in pure mathematics, applied mathematics, and statistics, as well as a module on the history of mathematics. Optional education modules will focus on the learning and teaching of mathematics, and science communication. You’ll also complete an independent project on an aspect of education research that particularly interests you. **Disclaimer** Course details are subject to change.
