Mathematical Investigation Skills is a module run by the School of Mathematics and Statistics for Level 1 single-honours mathematics students at the University of Sheffield. The module introduces topics which will be useful throughout students' time as undergraduates and beyond. These skills fall into two categories: computer literacy and presentation skills. Various computer packages are introduced in other modules; these share some programming capabilities, and one aim of this module is to develop programming techniques to perform mathematical investigations within the context of these mathematical packages. Students will also meet the typesetting system LaTeX, preparing reports and presentations into mathematical topics. Project work forms a large part of the module, with students working in groups on investigative mathematics.
