Mathematics in Context - A new course

Abstract:

In this article we describe a new course, entitled Mathematics in Context, which was tried out with a group of eight 3rd year honours students in the first two terms of the year 1988/89.
The aim of the course was to encourage students to examine global views of mathematics and to consider current issues appropriate to a professional mathematician.
