What is Mathematics?
Mathematics underpins almost all modern developments in science, IT and economics. The subject is not just about complicated calculations. It is about clear, logical, disciplined thinking in order to solve problems.
Study topics such as geometry, calculus and trigonometry (pure mathematics), and learn how to apply these techniques to real-life scenarios. Develop skills in deep analytical thinking, investigation and problem-solving that can be applied to any situation.
Why study Mathematics?
