Mathematical and Data Modelling 2 is a group activity designed to help students to improve their ability to apply their mathematical knowledge to the solution of problems of academia, industry and business. Students will work in small groups on three different projects, and present their project results via both written reports and oral presentation.

Aims: Learning how to apply mathematical modelling and data analysis in real-life problems, acquiring team-working skills, and practising presentation skills.

Intended learning outcomes

On successful completion of this unit students will:

  1. Understand how to apply mathematical modelling and data analysis in real-life problems.
  2. Understand how a small group functions when jointly working on a problem.
  3. Improve presentation skills.

Teaching details

Teaching will be delivered through a combination of synchronous and asynchronous sessions including online group meetings, and presentations. The core activity will be in the form of group modelling projects on topics of interest to academia, business, or industry.

Assessment Details

Individual Writing Project (10%), Group Project 1 (30%), Group Project 2 (30%), Group Project 3 (30%).
