Programinligting

Hierdie inligting is slegs in Engels beskikbaar.

The programme compilation consists of seven honours modules of 15 credits each as well as the mandatory project (30 credits). It is required that students select the stream and elective modules according to the prerequisites of the modules.

  • Stream 1: Applied analysis
  • Stream 2: Differential equations and modelling

Renewal of registration

  1. Subject to exceptions approved by the Dean, on the recommendation of the head of department, and in the case of distance education where the Dean formulates the stipulations that will apply, a student may not sit for an examination for the honours degree more than twice in the same module.
  2. A student for an honours degree must complete his or her study, in the case of full-time students, within two years and, in the case of after-hours students, within three years of first registering for the degree and, in the case of distance education students, within the period stipulated by the Dean. Under special circumstances, the Dean, on the recommendation of the head of department, may give approval for a limited extension of this period.

In calculating marks, General Regulation G.12.2 applies.

Apart from the prescribed coursework, a research project is an integral part of the study.

Toelatingsvereistes

'n BSc in Wiskunde, Toegepaste Wiskunde of gelykstaande graad met ten minste 'n gemiddelde 60% in die finale jaar Wiskunde of Toegepaste Wiskunde vakke. Die finale jaar moet ten minste vier van die volgende derdejaarsvlak modules of gelykstaande bevat: parsiële differensiaalvergelykings, dinamiese stelsels (gewone differensiaalvergelykings), reële analise, komplekse analise, numeriese analise en kontinuum meganika. In die keuringsprosedure die kandidaat se volledige voorgraadse akademiese rekord sal oorweeg word.

Bevordering tot volgende studiejaar

The progress of all honours candidates is monitored biannually by the postgraduate coordinator/head of department. A candidate’s study may be terminated if the progress is unsatisfactory or if the candidate is unable to finish his/her studies during the prescribed period.

Slaag met lof

The BScHons degree is awarded with distinction to a candidate who obtains a weighted average of at least 75% in all the prescribed modules and a minimum of 65% in any one module.

    This module aims at using advanced undergraduate mathematics and rigorously applying mathematical methods to concrete problems in various areas of natural science and engineering.
    The module will be taught by several lecturers from UP, industry and public sector. The content of the module may vary from year to year and is determined by relevant focus areas within the Department. The list of areas from which topics to be covered will be selected, includes: Systems of differential equations; dynamical systems; discrete structures; Fourier analysis; methods of optimisation; numerical methods; mathematical models in biology, finance, physics, etc.
