Applied mathematical thinking

2018-10-21 Here is the timetable for next week. On Monday I will give a lecture about creativity, and also talk more about mathematical reasoning. On Thursday we will have the follow-up on module 7, and also review the course as a whole. On Friday, there is a final supervision session 13.15-15.00 for those who want some last-minute help with any unfinished assignments. (There is no need to have a weekly supervisor meeting for the final report.) Congratulations on (nearly) reaching the end of the course! We're impressed with how much work you've all put in, and we look forward to reading your reports.

Instead we add supervision on Monday October 15 at 15-18 (in rooms EDIT 3354 and 3358) and extend the deadline for module 6 until Tuesday October 16. To even out the workload we also change the deadline for the module 5 reflection to Sunday October 14.
