Mathematics is a core discipline for understanding and explaining much of the modern world. From film making, weather forecasting, to analysis of sports scores, to banking and finance, all aspects of science, through computing – including gaming, media and communications, mathematics provides the underpinning that makes it all possible. Mathematics is also an intellectual journey that is second to none. Mathematics can provide you with many wonderful "aha!" moments when you see the truth of something, or the connections between two seemingly different topics. It also provides superb "brain-training", with its logical rigour, and its emphasis on problem solving. Mathematics is also supremely satisfying to teach, as you introduce your students to its riches, its applications, and its beauty. Now is a good time to study mathematics, as there is a huge shortage of well-trained teachers. With a mathematics method you will be welcome at any school! The final two units of this major are designed to engage students in content connected to the principles and practices of professionalism, entrepreneurship, innovation and design characteristics related to the specialist area.
