Managing Mathematical Projects - with Success! (Paperback)Philip P. G. Dyke (author)
- We can order this
The first student-centred guide on how to write projects and case studies in mathematics, with particular attention given to working in groups (something maths undergraduates have not traditionally done). With half of all universities in the UK including major project work of significant importance, this book will be essential reading for all students on the second or final year of a mathematics degree, or on courses with a high mathematical content, for example, physics and engineering.

From the reviews:
"More than 20 years of the author's experience in supervising and assessing mathematical projects have resulted in this book, the title of which can hardly be more eloquent. ... The features of individual projects, group projects and case studies are carefully described ... . It is a sheer joy reading it and appreciating the authors' refined style and humor. From the viewpoint of students, supervisors, as well as of assessors, this book must be unanimously marked as excellent." (EMS Newsletter, September, 2005)
"The text does discuss fully the supervision and assessment of both pure and applied mathematics projects, and, for me personally, the level of detail on this aspect has been the most useful feature of the book. ... Academic staff will certainly find this book relevant. For departments considering introducing final year projects based on mathematics, Managing mathematical projects gives invaluable guidelines. For departments already running such projects, the book is both useful and stimulating." (David Hood, The Mathematical Gazette, Vol. 91 (520), 2007)
