Description

Students can use this seminar subject to undertake a subject from the Australian Mathematical Science Institute Advanced Collaborative Environment Network ACE Network - Research and Higher Education (amsi.org.au) or with agreement of the program director select other appropriate subjects to engage in their learning. The purpose of this subject is to facilitate students' ability to access and enrol in other subjects that would extend their existing mathematical knowledge. The details of the content and assessment, subject learning objectives, and any other relevant information should be sourced from the subject outline of the corresponding subject.

This subject can only be undertaken following prior negotiation with the program director regarding appropriateness of the subjects.

Contribution to the development of graduate attributes

1. Disciplinary knowledge

The purpose of this subject is to facilitate student’s opportunity to learn and be assessed in mathematical disciplinary knowledge to a broader level on specific topics. This is assessed throughout the subject.

2. Research, inquiry and critical thinking

Scientific inquiry and critical thinking are developed through a range of learning activities. Students will explore the value of scientific thinking and apply existing approaches and strategies to problem-solving and decision-making.

4. Reflection, innovation, creativity

Students will develop advanced information retrieval and consolidation skills applied to the critical evaluation of the mathematical/statistical aspects of information gathered. Advanced critical thinking skills are also used to create innovative solutions for contemporary mathematical sciences and research problems.

Teaching and learning strategies

The subject typically has two to four contact hours per week, consisting of lectures, tutorials, workshop or consultation with the teaching staff. Arrangements for electronic access to learning resources will be made for students by the subject coordinator. Detailed teaching and learning strategies can be found in the subject-specific outline.
