## Stream Outline

Science, Engineering and Technology are based on mathematical thinking and use the language of mathematics. The Humanities, the Natural Sciences and the business world draw on the power of mathematics and statistics to predict, plan and understand natural and human affairs. As society becomes increasingly dependent on technology, mathematics is becoming more of an essential tool in our lives.

## Stream Structure

Level II and III courses delve into mathematical methods in greater depth and examine a variety of applications. Several of the courses taught are related, in some way, to the research that is currently undertaken by staff members. Students are shown, first hand, the crucial role that mathematics and statistics play in various areas of Science, Engineering and Technology.

A Major sequence in Mathematics and Statistics comprises the following Level I courses:

- ZPEM1301 Mathematics 1A (6 UOC)
