Student reviews

The module starts by sounding as though pi will be rounded down to 3, but then demonstrates practical reasons for doing so.

Very much for the applied mathematics enthusiast, this module felt like the perfect continuation of 'Mathematical Methods, Models and Modelling' (MST210) as modelling was very much a key element.
