All areas of study information should be read in conjunction with the relevant course entry in the Handbook. The units listed for this area of study relate only to the 'Requirements' outlined in the Faculty of Science component of any bachelors double degrees.
DescriptionMathematical techniques and models form a significant component of nearly all branches of modern science. Mathematics is also an important discipline in its own right, and encompasses the formal study of numerical, algebraic and analytical structures, the development of quantitative methods essential for the practice and development of science, engineering, economics and other fields, and the development and utilisation of mathematical and numerical models in various contexts. The mathematics and modelling minor sequence provides a grounding in mathematical techniques relevant to modelling and problem analysis, spanning continuous mathematics and deterministic modelling. ObjectivesOn completion of the minor sequence in mathematics and modelling, students will:
UnitsLevel oneLevel twoSequence requirementsMinor sequence in mathematics and modelling (24 points)Requirements for honours in mathematics
Additional informationThe mathematics and modelling minor sequence combines well with all science sequences, assisting students to develop skills in logic and analytical thinking as well as providing specific skills in problem solving, modelling and data analysis. First level units provide essential foundation knowledge for upper level studies. Students may then select second level units according to their needs and interests. Students planning to take third level mathematics units offered from the Clayton campus must include MTH1030 at first level and MTH2010 at second level. Relevant Courses+ 0050 Bachelor of Science
