Modules

Below is a summary of some of the modules on our undergraduate and postgraduate programmes.

More detailed information can be found on the individual module pages on MyLearning, our online teaching platform (access restricted to current Middlesex students and alumni).


BSc/MMath Mathematics and BSc/MSci Mathematics with Computing

MSO1120 – Calculus and Differential Equations

Integration and differentiation are used to model situations in physics and engineering, as well as in other applications. In this module we will look at how to describe these kinds of equations and you will be introduced to the importance of rigour in maths.

Course notes:

MSO1120 – Calculus and Differential Equations

MSO2120 – Mathematical Analysis

This module will begin by looking at what we really mean when we look at limits in mathematics and build on this to give you a greater understanding of series and calculus. The module builds on the ideas introduced in the year 1 modules about the need for rigour in maths. You will develop your ability to question mathematical arguments and to think logically about what definitions mean.

Course notes:

MSO2120 – Metric Spaces

MSO2120 – Metric Spaces Exercises

MSO3120 – Real and Complex Analysis

This module will develop student’s understanding of mathematical analysis by expanding on topics studied in MSO2120 Mathematical Analysis.

We begin with a rigorous study of multivariable calculus, extending our notion of integration to include line and surface integrals.

We follows this by demonstrating the necessity of an alternative to the Riemann Integral (MSO1120 Calculus and Differential Equations), which leads us to a notion of measure and the powerful Lebesgue integration.

Finally, we will look at analysis in the complex plane, which requires tools from multivariable calculus, where we will learn the differences and similarities between the analysis of real and complex functions.

Course notes:

MSO3120 – Multivariable Calculus

MSO3120 – Measure Theory

MSO3120 – Complex Analysis

MSO3130 – Communicating Mathematics

This module aims to develop students’ mathematics communication skills through a variety of mediums from traditional paper based reports to presentations to online material. It will also develop students’ appreciation of the role of mathematics in society and its historical development in order to help motivate mathematics to non-specialists.

As part of this module our students have published some videos to YouTube:
