Introduction to Mathematics

Mathematics students will learn a broad range of skills including pure mathematics, applied mathematics and statistics whilst studying at a UK university. Logical thinking, problem solving and advanced numeracy are the key components mathematicians need as they provide the theoretical framework for physical science, data analysis and statistics.
