RESEARCH AND COMMERCIAL SERVICES OFFICE

The Oxford University Research and Commercial Services Office
(RCSO) is based in the University Offices, Wellington Square
(with a satellite room at Room 9, Manor House, John Radcliffe
Hospital). The RCSO is part of the University's central
administration.

The office processes and approves all applications to outside
bodies for research grants and approves research related
agreements on behalf of the University. It also acts in an
advisory capacity for those seeking outside funding or requiring
information about specific initiatives (e.g. LINK, ROPA,
Teaching Company Schemes, EU research programmes, etc.).

The RCSO produces a weekly bulletin on funding opportunities,
electronic Research and Industry News
(eRIN), which is available to members of the
University via the World Wide Web at:
http://www.admin.ox.ac.uk/rcso/erin/current.

Research contracts with industry are negotiated through the
RCSO, which also deals, inter alia, with
various intellectual property matters, research-related work
covered by purchase orders, consultancy agreements, agreements
covering clinical trials and services, and services to industry.

The Director of the RCSO is Ms June Clark (telephone:
(2)70142, e-mail: june.clark@admin.ox.ac.uk).

The Assistant Director of the RCSO is Dr Roger Pritchett
(telephone: (2)80499, e-mail: roger.pritchett@admin.ox.ac.uk).

Other members of the RCSO from whom advice may be sought are
as follows:

Enquiries relating to day-to-day processing of research grant
applications should be addressed to the RCSO's Research Grants
Office, Room 330, the University Offices (telephone: (2)70146),
or, in the case of certain clinical departments, to the RCSO
satellite office, Room 9, Manor House, John Radcliffe Hospital
(telephone: 553 22544).

General enquiries may be addressed, in the first instance, to
the Director's Personal Assistant, Ms Jane Vicary (telephone:
(2)70143), who will be pleased to direct calls to the appropriate
member of staff.

Administrative procedures in respect of externally sponsored
research

Members of the University are reminded that it is a requirement
of the General Board that all applications for externally funded
support must be endorsed on behalf of the University through the
Research and Commercial Services Office before they are
dispatched to the sponsor, whether or not this is required by the
funding body. (This includes, for example, bodies such as the
Leverhulme Trust, and other charities and EU programmes which do
not specifically ask for administrative authorisation.)

The reason for the requirement is twofold: namely (i) to
ensure that the funds being requested are adequate for the
purpose and the costing rules of the funding body have been
applied correctly, and (ii) to ensure that the University would
be in a position to undertake the obligations arising from an
award and that these do not contravene University policy.

The detailed arrangements are as follows: applicants for
research grants should submit their applications, together with
a completed copy of the University's outside grant form (OG12),
to Room 330, Research and Commercial Services Office, University
Offices, Wellington Square, telephone (2)70146—leaving three
clear working days for them to be processed.

In connection with the acceptance of awards and signature
of contracts it should be noted that Statutes, Tit. X, cl. 2,
provides that `no official of the University or any other person
employed by the University or working in or in connection with
any department of or under the control of the University shall
in connection with any invention, discovery, or patent, or ...
process, or manufacture have authority to make any
representations on behalf of the University or to enter into any
contract on behalf of the University or to be concerned in any
transaction whatsoever in connection therewith on behalf of the
University except with the express consent of Council'.

The relevant officials in the Research and Commercial
Services Office have been given authority to approve applications
for external funds in support of research and the terms of
contracts in straightforward cases under this provision: in more
complicated cases, specific authority is necessary.

Enquiries related to any aspect of externally sponsored
research should be directed to the Research and Commercial
Services Office, whose staff would be pleased to help.

Honour School of Mathematical Sciences
1999

The Board of the Faculty of Mathematical Sciences has approved
the following paper for examination in Section o of the Honour
School of Mathematical Sciences 1999 (see Examination
Decrees
, 1996, p. 290, regulation 3 (e)).

Paper o12: Mathematics Education

This course is a study of the processes and practices in learning
and teaching mathematics and of associated issues. It will be of
value to undergraduates in developing their awareness of
processes and issues in mathematical learning and understanding
beneficial to their own learning of mathematics. It will also
serve as an introduction to mathematics education as a
discipline, and provide insights for those who are interested to
become future teachers of mathematics. The course will have three
strands:

1 Doing, thinking, and understanding
mathematics: this involves reflection on processes and strategies
which are a part of mathematical learning. What is
mathematics?
will be overtly addressed as will theories
of learning and learning difficulties. Links will be made with
undergraduates' own learning of mathematics.

2 Teaching mathematics and its relationship
to issues in learning: being an able mathematician is not, by
itself, sufficient to guarantee being an effective teacher of
mathematics, nor an effective unsupported learner of further
mathematics. Mathematical pedagogy will be introduced through an
analysis of mathematical topics and the needs of learners in
coming to understand these topics. We shall draw on research into
the learning and teaching of mathematics at all levels.

3 Wider issues in the learning and teaching
of mathematics: this strand will explore a range of issues in
mathematics education: for example social and cultural issues and
the roles of technology.

Outline of topics to be covered:

Mathematical Thinking: the nature of mathematics; the process of
mathematics; convincing and proving; conjecturing; advanced
mathematical thinking.

Mathematical Understanding: mathematics and language;
visualisation and imagery; children and number; strategies and
errors.

Psychology of Learning Mathematics: relational and instrumental
understandings; understanding, learning, and knowing;
constructivism.

Research in Mathematics Teaching: teaching styles and interactive
strategies; constructions of teaching; assessment.

Sociology of Mathematics Teaching: social constructivism and
situated cognition; gender, culture, and social class.

Organisation of Mathematics Teaching and Learning: school
curricula; classroom learning.

The examination will consist of a three-hour paper with
three essay-type questions each relating to one of the strands
of the course. Preparation for two of these questions will be
done in advance.
