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 and finance. It also underlies data analysis, forecasting, modelling, decisionmaking and problemsolving principles. Mathematicians contribute creatively to almost every aspect of modern life.
 Outcomes
Students are able to:
 apply abstract reasoning, rigour and logical deduction in mathematics
 demonstrate an understanding of axiomatic systems and the fundamentals of mathematics
 establish the truth of a mathematical statement
 write correct and convincing mathematical proofs
 apply the power of mathematics to model and understand the real world
 model realworld phenomena in the language of mathematics.
 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 and to pursue as many areas of interest as you can during your course of study. At the same time, we k now that many of you value the University's guidance and assistance in planning your enrolment throughout your course, so we offer the following suggestions for your consideration as possible avenues to broaden your degree. Do always remember, however, that there is no wrong way to broaden your studies as long as you complete at least four units not associated with your Degree Specific Major.
Suggested units to broaden your study area, are:
(1) PHYS1001 Physics for Scientists and Engineers
(2) PHYS1002 Modern Physics
(3) CITS1401 Computational Thinking with Python  Incompatibilities
