Title | Authentic by design: developing mathematicians for the talent economy |
---|---|

Authors | Masterson, B., Megeney, A., Sharples, N., Lawrence, S. and Jones, M. |

Abstract | MSOR programmes are highly valued as intellectually demanding, and require students to formulate, abstract, and solve problems rigorously. A current challenge is to reconcile the most abstract maths with sector trends towards practice-based learning and teaching, and authentic assessment. Some institutions are responding by reviewing the balance of pure and applied mathematics. |
