Group projects based on Art Gallery Problems

CETL-MSOR Conference 2009, Open University (08/09/2009).

I contributed a talk to a workshop on "Integration of Graduate Skills into Maths Programmes". The abstract for my talk is below.

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.

I teach mathematics at Sheffield Hallam University and am a researcher focused on higher education mathematics educational practice. Find out more about Peter Rowlett. This website also houses lists of my publications and talks I have given.
