Mathematics and statistics
About this study area
Every scientist, engineer, medical specialist and economist uses maths and/or statistics. All the time.
By studying mathematics, you’ll go beyond just using an equation – you’ll be able to pick that equation apart, understand its component parts and, maybe, put it back together with improvements.
And you’ve probably heard the saying: there’s lies, damn lies and statistics. That’s half true – there’s bad statistics, and there’s good statistics. Can you spot the difference?
