Mathematical Sciences is the study of abstract deductive systems, numerical facts, data and their applications.
The main purpose of this narrow field of education is to develop an understanding of symbolic language and logic, mathematical theories and their deductive systems, techniques and modelling.
It also involves developing an understanding of random processes and the ability to apply mathematical methods and modelling techniques to practical problems.
Courses in Mathematical Sciences develop skills in:
- application of mathematical methods to problem solving
- analysis and development of mathematical systems and theories
- systematic methods to prove theorems and to construct, analyse and interpret mathematical models and numerical data
This narrow field comprises the following detailed fields:
- Mathematical Sciences
