The department of Mathematics organizes both the Bachelor and Master program in Mathematics at VUB and the research activities of the affiliated research groups. This module is optional for students taking the BSc in Mathematics combined with any of Accountancy, Economics, Financial Economics or Psychology. As well as offering degrees in Mathematics and Mathematical Biology, we offer a wide range of Joint Honours Degrees, where Mathematics can be combined with a variety of other subjects, for example, Accountancy, Economics, English, Physics, and Psychology. A typical mathematics degree program involves a combination of pure (theory and abstract) mathematics and applied (practical application to the world) mathematics. In this blog, I will tell about history especially about history of mathematics.
If you have exceptional pre-university grades, some institutions allow exemption from the first year’s study so you can enter directly into the second year, or enroll in an ‘advanced entry’ program – both options will allow you to complete your undergraduate mathematics degree in one year less than usual. Whenever you do a problem or follow a new mathematical thread explicitly formulate expectations.
Several civilizations — in China, India, Egypt, Central America and Mesopotamia — contributed to mathematics as we know it today. Functional analysis plays an important role in many areas of applied mathematics and is essential for the theory of Partial Differential Equations, Numerical Analysis, Probability theory and Theoretical Physics. Useful for students interested in engineering and aerospace, fluid dynamics addresses fluid phenomena of various scales from a mathematical viewpoint. Currently, six members of the Department of Computer Science and Mathematics hold NSERC grants.
This includes topics such as integers, graphs, trees, sets, chromatic numbers, recurrence relations and mathematical logic. Tricki , Wiki-style site that is intended to develop into a large store of useful mathematical problem-solving techniques. Since the beginning of recorded history, mathematic discovery has been at the forefront of every civilized society, and in use in even the most primitive of cultures. The MathemaTIC dashboard provides teachers with user-friendly, intuitive visualizations of the data that is gathered from students’ activities using the mathematical items.
If you are eager to get involved beyond the classroom, take part in the annual Undergraduate Research Conference , which gives you the opportunity to present your work to peers, professors, and family members. Mathematics & statistics have always been taught at Strathclyde with an eye firmly fixed on their practical applications. The Fields Institute, while focusing much of its attention on mathematics as a discipline, also features the Math Ed Forum which offers regular public meetings at Fields, as well as sponsoring a variety of mathematics education events and projects.
