We offer a number of 20 credit modules in maths at first-year level. Your programme will require you to take a number of these.

This is a core module covering techniques and methods in calculus and algebra, given in the autumn term. It carries on directly from A-level core mathematics. All students will be required to pass this to progress to year 2.

This is a core module covering techniques and methods in calculus and algebra, given in the spring term. It carries on directly from MSM1Aa Maths Core A. All students will be required to pass this to progress to year 2.

This is a 20-credit module introducing you to rigorous pure mathematics, and the idea of proof. Most students find all the material in this module new, and usually challenging. It is given as a 10 credit unit in the autumn term (MSM1Ba) followed by a 10 credit unit (MSM1Bb) in the spring term. You will also attend workshops as part of this module. All single honours students will be required to pass this to progress to year 2.

This is a version of MSM1B for students taking joint degrees or a major in mathematics. It covers the same material as MSM1B but omits the workshops, replacing them with an alternative exploratory task, because these students usually have complicated timetables that are not compatible with workshops. Exceptionally, it may be available to other joint honours students (BA maths and an arts subject) in place of MSM1C or MSM1D - see the year director for advice. As for MSM1B it is likely to be found challenging. It is not mentioned on some timetables. If it is omitted, please attend lectures for MSM1B (or, in the case of a timetable clash and after checking with the year director and/or lecturer, MSM2P01.) If you are taking 80 credits in mathematics in year 1 or as part of Pure Maths and Computer Science you will be required to pass this module to progress to year 2.

This is a 20-credit module that gives you an introduction to university-style mechanics and applied mathematics (autumn term) and to numerical and computational mathematics using MATLAB (spring term). No background in mechanics, physics or applied mathematics is assumed. It is a compulsory module for single honours students and some other programmes. For many joint honours programmes you may swap MSM1D for MSM1C. See the year director for advice as soon as possible.

This is a 20-credit module that gives you an introduction to the foundations of counting, combinatorics (autumn term) and to university-style statistics (spring term). No background in statistics or decision mathematics is assumed. It is a compulsory module for single honours students and some other programmes. For many joint honours programmes you may swap MSM1C for MSM1D. See the year director for advice as soon as possible.

These are Modules Outside the Main Discipline (MOMDs) and are available for single honours students. They are described further in a separate webpage.
