Mini-Seminars in Discrete Mathematics
One Tick in the Part IA 50% portfolio is associated with the
Discrete Mathematics lectures. The class will be divided into groups
of up to 15 students per group and each group will meet on four
occasions in the Lent Term, at the same time each week for four
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 lost.
