Thesis Project for the Degree of Bachelor of Science in Mathematics

  • Number of credits 15 Credits

About the course

During the course, students are trained in specifying, planning, carrying out and presenting an independent thesis project. The course builds on selected first cycle courses, and goes deeper into the selected subject matter than ordinary courses in mathematics. The course gives an introduction to the concept of research within the subject, as regards approaching a question, collecting and analysing background material and presenting research questions and conclusions. A central part of the course is producing a written report, and presenting one's work orally and in written form at seminars.
