Content (Syllabus outline)

With the help of all the lecturers of the study program and other teachers from Department of mathematics, the seminar chair prepares a sufficient number of short independent topics with the relevant basic literature. Students, however, can look for additional sources.

Readings

gradivo, ki ga pripravi vodja seminarja
S. Krantz: A primer of mathematical writing, American Mathematical Society, 1997.

Objectives and competences

The purpose of the course is a preparation and a final presentation of the final seminar work. The preparation of the seminar work starts and is mostly done in the first semester, the second semester is used for the finalization. The course is designed specifically to learn direct practice, as the themes are taken from practice. We will invite employees of institutions and organizations from financial sector to participate in the organization of the seminar.

Intended learning outcomes

Knowledge and understanding: Student learn to look for additional sources in literature and internet and learn how to prepare a short presentation and write a seminar work.
Application: Gained experience will be of use during the course of study for other courses and later for work.
Reflection: The ability to connect new skills to the expertise.
Transferable skills: Gained experience will be of use during the course of study for other courses that require presentation or homework.

Learning and teaching methods

Each student prepares two presentations in the duration of 30 minutes which is followed by 15 minutes for a discussion and question session. Each student has to write a short seminar work. The final presentation of the seminar work presents a formal end
