Tue 18
Maths: Mathematics and Science Writing Session 1: Writing Workshop new Finished 14:00 - 16:00 Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Meeting Room 4, AL.08

This session will help you to identify the key ideas within your research that you wish to communicate, and then develop your understanding of how to use a mixture of conceptual approaches, examples and analogies to explain complex mathematical ideas to an audience with no specialist mathematical or scientific knowledge. The workshop is designed to be very practical, with the aim that you’ll come away with at least an opening and closing paragraph, and an outline for a piece of work. Participants are asked to prepare for the workshop by identifying an idea they would like to work on.

Tue 25
Maths: Mathematics and Science Writing Sesson 2: Editing Workshop new CANCELLED 14:00 - 16:00 Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Meeting Room 5, AL.02

This session will aim to develop a finished piece of writing, focussing on editing and finessing a piece participants have already drafted (for those also attending the writing workshop, this can build on the piece you worked on in the writing workshop). The workshop will involve practical exercises that can be used to improve a piece of writing. The workshop will include time to work individually and in groups redrafting existing work. The aim is to come to the workshop with a draft, and leave the workshop with a finished piece of writing.

Maths: Teaching and Supervising Mathematics Undergraduates Finished 13:30 - 16:00 Department of Applied Mathematics and Theoretical Physics, Meeting Room 5, AL.02

This course complements the supervising training and information your Department will provide. It is a course that consists of: an online module, which introduces practices and principles of undergraduate supervision at Cambridge, and a face-to-face workshop in which you will explore challenges and approaches to supervising.

By the end of this course you will know:

  • The purpose of supervisions at Cambridge
  • How to deal with common supervision scenarios
  • How to provide effective feedback
  • The practicalities of starting to supervise

Topics covered:

  • Introduction to supervisiong (including what supervisions are, format, preparing for them)
  • Background information for those who need it (British education system, Cambridge undergraduate system)
  • Role of a supervisor
  • Dealing with different supervision scenarios
  • Departmental information
  • Summary of what you have learnt
  • Practical tips and advice
  • Resources for ongoing support and information
