Title | Engaging with mathematics: how mathematical art, robotics and other activities are used to engage students with university mathematics and promote employability skills |

Authors | Megeney, A. |

Abstract | There has been much discussion about what exactly employability skills are for mathematics students and how they can be embedded, promoted and developed in mathematics curricula. Mathematics graduates are highly employable and are valued for their reasoning skills, analytical and logical approaches to problem solving, and their abstract thinking. It is the more general employability skills that are more difficult to promote in a mathematics specific context within programmes. |
