Abstract

An increasing number of schools are teaching programming to their pupils and there is also an increase in programming in Higher Education with recent reports recommending this approach. At Manchester Metropolitan University (MMU) we wanted to attract and retain mathematics students and prepare them for careers upon graduation. By integrating Mathematics/Statistics/Operational Research packages across the curriculum and by solving real world problems we have managed to make the course highly desirable and loved by our students. In this case study, we show how it is possible to integrate programming and mathematical/computational modelling across the curriculum.
