Department Electives

CIT wishes you to take ownership of your own learning. The free choice module is a reserved one module place in each semester where you, the learner, can decide what you would like to study. Many of you may wish to choose an elective module offered by your department as your free choice but some of you may wish to choose an alternative module to develop skills and interests outside your main area of study.

The Department of Mathematics has developed a number of maths modules specifically geared towards this free choice.

If there are not enough students registered for a module it may not run. For the academic year 2017/18, the deadline for module enrolment in Semester One is 17:00, 6 October 2017, and for Semester Two it is 17:00, 9 February 2018.

See this flyer for a information on Semester 2 Electives.

 

MATH6028 MATHEMATICAL EXPLORATIONS --- semester 1 and SEMESTER 2

This module explores how Mathematics is intrinsically linked to the world around us. The module is fun and hopes to take advantage of the participant’s innate passion for things mathematical. The student must to be willing to actively engage and participate through the weekly labs to make the most of the module.
