Extended Major Overview
 Description
Mathematics is humanity's most powerful tool for comprehending the universe and is essential for many fields of modern endeavour such as science, technology, engineering, biology, finance, computing, etc. It also underlies data analysis, forecasting, modelling, decisionmaking and problemsolving principles. Mathematicians contribute creatively to almost every aspect of modern life. This major will equip you with foundational knowledge in mathematics that will allow you to pursue engaging careers in research, teaching, or industry.
 Outcomes
Students are able to (1) explain mathematical concepts and principles that underpin a wide range of applications at the level of an earlycareer scientist; (2) investigate physical, numerical and theoretical problems using appropriate mathematical techniques; (3) demonstrate an understanding of axiomatic systems and the fundamentals of mathematics, by applying abstract reasoning, rigour and logical deduction in mathematics; and (4) apply the power of mathematics to model and understand the real world.
 Broadening guidelines
All students studying towards a Bachelor's Degree at UWA are required to broaden their studies by completing a minimum of four units (24 points) of study outside their degree specific major. Broadening is your opportunity to explore other areas of interest, investigate new disciplines and knowledge paradigms and to shape your degree to suit your own aspirations and interests. Many of you will be able to undertake more than this minimum amount of broadening study and we encourage you to do so if this suits your aspirations. Over the next few months you will find here some broadening suggestions related to your degreespecific major. While we know that many students value guidance of this sort, these are only suggestions and students should not lose sight of the opportunity to explore that is afforded by your Broadening Choices. Advice can also be sought from your Allocated Student Advising Office.
 Prerequisites
Enrolment in the BP059 Bachelor of Mathematics and (Mathematics Methods ATAR or equivalent or higher) and (Mathematics Specialists ATAR or equivalent or higher) and an ATAR score of at least 90.
