|Summary||The Mathematics project is an opportunity to investigate a subject in depth under the guidance of an experienced mathematician.
The Mathematics project is normally undertaken by a group who work together and submit a single report. It may also be taken, depending on availability, by individuals.
A good project is expected to contain material such as original examples that could appropriately appear in a text book on the subject.
The normal assessment of the project is via a written report produced with LaTeX combined with either a workshop for other students or a talk to an audience of students.
