Mathematics in STEM seminar on Thursday 24th May: RAEng - presentation slides

Posted: 08/06/2012

On 24 May a seminar for STEM admissions tutors was held at the Royal Academy of Engineering, with a focus on mathematics in STEM and transition issues from school/college to university. The seminar was jointly organised by the Royal Academy of Engineering, the Institute of Physics and MEI. Presentations from Peter Main, of the Institute of Physics, Richard Lissaman, of the Further Mathematics Support Programme and Charlie Stripp, of MEI, all emphasised the importance of mathematics for students’ transition to STEM degree courses, and the value of AS/A level Further Mathematics in improving students’ preparation for degree courses, particularly in Engineering and Physics.

The seminar also included input from Chris Millward, of HEFCE, on the implications of student number reforms on STEM, and Mary Curnock Cook, of UCAS, on university admissions reform and STEM.
