Science at St. Andrews - Mathematics
Our objective is to develop rigorous mathematical reasoning and critical thinking skills, which enable students to solve real-life problems. Our students learn by doing, and they, not the teacher, are the center of the classroom.
Through our curriculum, well guide you through a degree program filled with mathematical problem solving of increasing difficulty, thus developing rigorous mathematical reasoning which will enable you to move from the concrete to the abstract to the theoretical.
have made learning mathematics an active process, so our computer
may often look chaotic to an outsider. Most of our classes employ computer-interactive
texts through which you can explore and discover mathematics.
You will write to learn mathematics and learn to write mathematics. By
working often in small groups and giving both oral and written presentations,
you will learn to communicate mathematics. Through this process you will
internalize mathematics and develop rigorous thinking skills.
