TLAC Review of Mathematics
TLAC Review of Mathematics 2011
The five-yearly review of the Mathematics Department by the School's Teaching, Learning and Assessment Committee (TLAC) took place in February 2011. The purpose of TLAC Reviews is explained here. The department is asked to submit a Departmental Statement ahead of the review, and ours can be found here. The committee's full report, following the review and which is published in Word format, can be found by clicking here. The department was asked to make a formal response to the review one year after it had taken place, in the form of an implementation report, and you can view this, in PDF format, here.
