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.faces. Choosing as a vehicle a topic covered early in the project is thus a good idea. Once the general scene is set, one possible route for ... If we have plane Cartesian co-ordinates (X, Y) then a typical straight line takes the form of the linear equation aX + bY + c = 0. ... That all conics look like ellipses with the a ellipsea being a parabola if it is tangent to the line at infinity and a hyperbola if it crosses this lineanbsp;...
