The study of mathematics is fascinating and challenging. It develops a set of skills that are in high demand across a range of sectors. This course provides you with the opportunity to develop your knowledge, understanding, technical skills and confidence to operate successfully in an international and globalised work environment. This course also allows you to engage with a range of theoretical perspectives from ancient Greece to the present. Examining these perspectives enables you to think deeply about developments in educational and mathematical theory and practices. You will also develop a sound knowledge in your subject areas, an informed critical voice and the capacity for the critical application of their knowledge to a range of real life settings in and beyond formal education. In your first year you will be introduced to a wide variety of mathematical and statistical theories across the pure and applied ends of the spectrum. You will also be introduced to the range of educational, mathematical and statistical theories which provide the foundations for successful study in your second and third years. The second year continues the journey through the weird and wonderful world of abstract mathematics by exploring several modern mathematical theories such as number theory, abstract algebra and analysis, to name a few. On the education studies front, you will engage deeply in the study of educational concepts, issues and abstract ideas. Having been exposed to the gamut of mathematics and education courses during the first two years, the final year focuses on the critical application of theory to a wide range of educational situations, contexts, settings and experiences in the real world and to the development of specialised mathematical knowledge and understanding in the areas you are interested in. You will also undertake a final year project on a topic that interests you.
