PMAT4103: Pure Mathematics Honours Project A

Independent research can be a life changing experience. In this unit you will complete a research project in the discipline of Pure Mathematics. Together with your supervisor, you will identify a suitable research problem and develop a strategy to address it. This may include synthesising and generalising results from the mathematical literature, generating new examples, or proving new theorems. In terms of assessment, you will communicate the research plan and findings via an oral presentation and a 40 to 60 page honours thesis. Successful completion of your Honours will clearly demonstrate that you have mastered significant research and professional skills for either undertaking a PhD or any variety of future careers.
