READING IN MATHEMATICS
Are you interested in some area or problem in Math or Stats but those have not been covered in the courses you took?
Approach a faculty (or a postdoc) with your idea/ interest/ suggestion and discuss this one-on-one opportunity.
The area of study in these courses has to be different from the material covered in the courses offered in Math and Stats.
You need to:
1) Identify an area that you want to work on and identify a faculty supervisor with whom you will be working.
2) Discuss arrangements with your chosen supervisor, which need to include: objectives (what are you supposed to accomplish? (study a text, or a paper, read a book, etc.); deliverables (what do you need to do? weekly oral reports, written reports, assignments, final project, etc.); details on how the course mark will be assigned at the end.
All the above should be presented in the standard format of a course outline.
You and your supervisor fill out the form and submit it to the Associate Chair for approval.
Once signed, the form is processed by the Math and Stats office, and you go ahead and formally register for the course.
Note: These courses can be taken in any term.
Directed reading in areas of mathematics of interest to the student and the instructor.
