62626-01 - Seminar: Using Mathematics to Solve Real World Problems 3 KP

Semester Herbstsemester 2021
Angebotsmuster einmalig
Dozierende Jung Kyu Canci (jungkyu.canci@unibas.ch, BeurteilerIn)
Inhalt During this seminar we will critically read and discuss a selection of papers relating to influential ideas and examples in using mathematics to solve real world problems. The focus is both on classical papers with established important work for the applied mathematical and scientific literature, as well as on more recent articles with high potential.
Lernziele • Independent study of applied mathematical/statistical research papers.
• Prepare and give a scientific presentation.
• Communicating and discussing scientific ideas.
• Structuring and writing technical reports.
Literatur A list of selected papers from the applied maths literature will be available as of September 20, 2021. In the introductory lecture of September 20 students will be asked to indicate their interest so that we can use their preference to guide the assignment wherever possible.
Bemerkungen Teacher as an Expert: Philipp Mekler

Organizational issues and a first familiarization with the topics will be presented during the first class of September 20. Both instructors will give a set of introductory lectures during the classes of September 27 and October 4, respectively. The assignment of individual student presentations will have be finalized no later than October 4. The first student presentation will take place on October 11, 2021. We will take advantage of the lecture on September 20 to go over any general aspects about the seminar and any other open questions students may have. One of the instructors (Philipp Mekler) will be available to meet students at least once before their session, in order to answer any questions about the topic and provide feedback on their planned presentation.

Module Modul: Seminare (Bachelorstudium: Mathematik)
Leistungsüberprüfung Lehrveranst.-begleitend
Hinweise zur Leistungsüberprüfung Active participations is expected from all students during all lectures. Each week one (or two) student(s) will give a presentation about a research paper; one (or two) will take the lead in asking questions and moderating the discussion, one (or two) will provide critical and constructive feedback. Therefore each student will play a particular role on at least 3 occasions (presenting, moderating, giving feedback).
Rough format: ~50 minutes presentation, and ~40 minutes class discussion, with a ~15 minutes break in between.
After the presentation, students are to write up a short report with lecture notes/slides providing a synopsis of the paper and highlights from the subsequent discussion, to be submitted (via e-mail to Jung Kyu Canci) within one week of their session. Rough format: paper overview, relevance, specific examples or a small simulation study where appropriate, comprehensive recap of the points raised during the class discussion and the feedback from peers. Aim for 4-10 pages.
