Years 1 and 2
You’ll follow the same curriculum as the BSc (Honours) in Mathematics. Part-time study is possible. In addition to the study of core mathematical methods, you’ll learn calculus, geometry, applied analysis, mechanics, numerical analysis probability and statistics.
One half of the course is focused upon education with input from staff in the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences. You’ll also undertake work placements in schools.
Education classes start in late August at the beginning of Year 3. If you realise that teaching is not for you, it is possible to transfer to the Honours degree course in Mathematics.
Again the course is split between Mathematics & Statistics and Education. Mathematics-based classes are contained in semester one and with the final semester devoted to topics in Education and school experience.
