## Stream Outline

**Applied Mathematics (MATHAH####), Pure Mathematics (MATHPH####), or Statistics (MATHTH####),**.

If you achieve a Credit or above average in at least four Level III Mathematics courses you should consider an Honours degree. The Honours year introduces students to recent knowledge and current research. It consists not only of advanced lecture topics but also of an Honours thesis. The lectures attempt to bring students near the frontier of each area, with the Honours lecturers generally presenting material in areas to which they are contributing new knowledge.

## Stream Structure

- Completed a Mathematics or Statistics Major in the Science program, including at least 30 units of credit in Level III Mathematics; or
- Completed a suitable Mathematics or Statistics degree at another university.

Students are normally required to have an average of 70% or above in Level III Mathematics courses and to have shown some evidence of the ability to undertake independent study.

So that students have sufficient background to attempt the courses in the Honours year, it is recommended that you discuss your selection of Level III courses with your Departmental Honours Coordinator or another academic adviser.

For Honours in

**Pure Mathematics**, you must normally take a significant number of your Level II and III Mathematics courses at the Higher level.
