Making a maths degree work for the workplace

Making a maths degree work for the workplace Thumbnail


This article will provide ideas for teaching methods that aim to provide undergraduate students with the experience of working with mathematics in a business context. These teaching methods have been employed at a mainstream U.K. university in a final-year module, and employers have been heavily involved in designing and assessing learning activities. The student feedback and reflections on these activities will be presented in this case study.
