Group projects based on Art Gallery Problems

'Developing Graduate Skills in HE Mathematics Programmes' workshop, University of Birmingham (19/05/2011).

Presentation as part of the workshop 'Developing Graduate Skills in HE Mathematics Programmes'. Abstract:

This talk will examine what group project work can achieve and present how this was applied in a transferable skills module at NTU. A group project based around the Art Gallery Problems was designed to encourage critical evaluation of a mathematical model and communication of mathematical ideas to audiences of differing mathematical abilities.
