Course Schedule for CM50175
Research Project Preparation   2005

Main Course Page

Lectures this year are in 3E 2.1 at 11:15 am on Tuesdays.

The May lecture is totally optional. It is provided  to answer last minute questions about how to write the introductory chapter (that is, get full marks for the part of your paper I will be marking) and possibly to help students find partners for proof-reading.

Seminar participation on 11 & 18 March and 22 April is mandatory and for credit.  None of the other lectures or seminars are mandatory; they're just recommended.
