Discrete Mathematics Seminars
Principal lecturer: Prof Glynn Winskel
Taken by: Part IA (50% option)
Mini-Seminars in Discrete Mathematics
One Tick in the Part IA 50% portfolio is associated with the
Lent Term Discrete Mathematics lectures. The class will
be divided into groups of up to 11 students per group and
each group will meet on four occasions, at the
same time each week for four consecutive weeks.
A schedule has been issued showing who has been allocated to
which groups and when the groups will meet. At each session,
up to four students will be required to give a mini-seminar
lasting about 10 minutes. The topic of the seminar will be
issued well in advance.
An attendance register will be kept and to secure the
Discrete Mathematics Tick a student must attend
all four sessions and deliver a mini-seminar.
In the rare event of a student being unable to attend a session, a
Tutor's note addressed to the Secretary of the Faculty Board of
Computer Science and Technology will be required. In the absence of such a note the Tick will be
