Reviewing the mathematics curriculum in a changing HE environment

Barrie Cooper

Abstract


Four crucial documents in recent years have challenged mathematics programme coordinators nationally to deliberate on the identity of their subject and programmes. In the new HE environment, there are significant challenges to be addressed and yet opportunities also to create something distinctive and exciting. In my role as Assistant Director of Education for Mathematics and Computer Science, I discuss the key recommendations of these four documents and their implications for mathematics at Exeter. I also describe an ambitious path for mathematics at Exeter to forge that reflects more closely the marketing aspirations of the University of Exeter and makes explicit the values underpinning the subject that are too often ignored.
