Third Party Resources (7)

Resource type A Statistical Awareness Curriculum for STEM Graduate Employees
This project created a learning environment that raises statistical awareness among STEM employers and employees and: shows the need for employers to audit employees' statistical skills and act on the evidence provided by the audit; builds an understanding of the role of statistical skills in developing a fully competent workforce; develops an appreciation of how statistical skills can be improved. It created a web-based tool for employers to audit their employees? statistical skills. This report gives details about the project and the created resources.

Resource type Being a Professional Mathematician
This booklet details the curriculum resources created by the project 'Being a Professional Mathematician'. This aimed to produce a collection of teaching resources on the development of mathematics - stories from history and more recent development of the discipline. These aimed to counter a view of mathematics as a static, completed body of knowledge and instead encourage awareness of the process of doing mathematics. They aimed to develop students' awareness of the culture of mathematics. This booklet gives details of the material created and discusses how this material may be used in the curriculum. This booklet was written by Tony Mann and Chris Good.

Resource type Being a Professional Mathematician website
This website houses the audio and worksheet resources created by the project 'Being a Professional Mathematician'. This aimed to produce a collection of teaching resources on the development of mathematics - stories from history and more recent development of the discipline. These aimed to counter a view of mathematics as a static, completed body of knowledge and instead encourage awareness of the process of doing mathematics. They aimed to develop students’ awareness of the culture of mathematics. This work is licensed under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike 3.0 Unported License.
Resource type Employer Engagement in Undergraduate Mathematics
It is important to take account of the needs of employers when developing graduate mathematicians. Some of the projects reported in this booklet have worked with employers, employees or professional bodies to develop research findings, good practice advice and curriculum resources to improve graduate skills. Others offer examples of approaches involving employers in delivery of teaching and assessment for work-related learning, and various models that can be used to place students within organisations for work-based learning.

Resource type Graduates' Views on the Undergraduate Mathematics Curriculum
Over 400 mathematics graduates were surveyed 2.5 years after graduation. They were asked to reflect on the knowledge and skills they believed that they developed during their mathematical study, and to assess how useful these skills have been during their career to date. These data were benchmarked against an earlier survey of incoming undergraduates' expectations. This aimed to determine whether the higher education mathematics syllabus adequately prepares students for the workplace. This report provides context, describes and discusses the findings of this research. This report was written by Matthew Inglis, Tony Croft and Janette Matthews.

Resource type Industrial Problem Solving for Higher Education (IPSHE) wiki
The IPSHE curriculum project aims to encourage a teaching methodology based on solving practical problems arising in industry and science. This wiki maintains a growing list of case studies from real, recent industrial and scientific research problems serving as a basis for group projects at all levels of undergraduate study.

Resource type Industrial problems for the HE curriculum (statistics)
This project engaged with an industrial/business partner, a large food manufacturer in the south west, in order to bring their data and associated problems into the HE curriculum. It identified real problems they had with quality control of raw and cooked ingredients in a selected range of their products. These problems were solvable using data interrogation, graphical and statistical modelling methods. The company made available a large amount of real data they routinely collect during their production processes. This report gives details about the project and the created resources.
