Computing for Mathematics: individual coursework


Instructions

Write a 3 page report on a mathematical topic. Consider the target audience of your report to be first year mathematics students wanting to learn about a given topic. Your report is to be written in LaTeX and must use aspects of programming (Python) to illustrate the particular topic.

For your topic choose a theorem, conjecture or algorithm and use code to illustrate, prove or disprove it.

You are encouraged to choose your own topic, if you do so I recommend checking with me (Vince Knight) that the topic is appropriate.


Marking scheme

The following marking scheme will be applied:

All code that you want to be considered for marks must be included in the 3 page limit.*
