Maths Group Study presentations

On Friday 9 March the Year 1 maths students presented their work in the Group Study component of the “Professional Skills and Group Study” module. Nine teams used Powerpoint to report on their study of different topics in pure and applied mathematics. In each team, the students were taking turns to present their contribution to the group report, with general introductions and conclusions. Questions were asked by the examiners Prof Evgeny Khukhro and Dr Manuela Mura.

New Maths with Philosophy degree accredited by IMA

IMAThe School of Mathematics and Physics is delighted to announce that our new BSc (Hons) degree programme in Mathematics with Philosophy has been granted accreditation by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications. This degree provides students with the opportunity to develop a large skill set in pure and applied mathematics while developing a philosophical understanding of the world we live in and the place we occupy within it. The accreditation ensures that this programme meets the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught master’s degrees. 

We are very grateful to our external assessor, Professor John S. Wilson, University of Oxford, for his very positive feedback and his support to further develop the programme. Here is what he had to say:

The proposed new degree programme in Mathematics and Philosophy is a very positive development. The course has been carefully crafted to take advantage of the diverse and impressive skills of the teaching staff. Students will enjoy the course and will appreciate the many interesting career possibilities that it opens up.

We are looking forward to meeting our new Mathematics with Philosophy students in September 2018. If you are interested and would like to know more about our programmes, please visit our website.

School of Mathematics & Physics celebrates International Women’s Day 2018

Maths & Physics News

Today is International Women’s Day. In celebration of this yearly event, we met with some of our female students to find out the projects they’re undertaking as part of their studies at the School of Mathematics & Physics, University of Lincoln UK.

After being recognised for its commitment to advancing women’s careers in STEMM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics and Medicine), the University of Lincoln achieved a Bronze Award in 2014 as part of the Athena SWAN Charter.

In addition, the women in science, engineering and technology group (WiSE@Lincoln) was set up at the University in 2012 to coordinate and deliver sustained support, guidance, training and inspiration for the Lincoln women in science, engineering and technology. The WiSE group is overseen by the Eleanor Glanville Centre, an interdisciplinary centre for inclusion, diversity and equality at the University of Lincoln.

Ice-skating in Nottingham

Charlotte Scott Centre for Algebra

On Saturday, the 3rd of March 2018, a group of 11 staff and students plus friends travelled to Nottingham to spend the afternoon ice-skating at the Ice Arena. We also briefly meet Sandro and his unicycling mates on their ride around Nottingham.

Everyone skated really well. Congratulations especially to those who haven’t had that much experience!

Some photos from the day:


And some really blurry ones, as everyone was skating too fast. Spot an Alastair or a George or a Michael, if you can:
