  • Honours core unit in Mathematics and Statistics [Bachelor of Science (Honours)]
This unit is the second of the two units, MATH4001 and MATH4002, which are taken in successive semesters, and jointly comprise the research project that must be completed to fulfill the requirements for the Honours course in Mathematics and Statistics. Students work on their research project, which is a continuation of the research project they have worked on in MATH4001.
Students are able to (1) apply mathematical and/or statistical reasoning to analyse the essential structure of problems arising in areas of mathematics or statistics and extend their knowledge of mathematical techniques and adapt solutions to different situations; (2) gain experience in planning and engaging in independent investigation in a topic in their chosen area of Mathematics and Statistics; (3) gain experience in completing a research project in a timely manner and present their findings effectively to broad audience, including experts in the area; and (4) gain experience in the basic principles of technical writing, constructing and presenting a talk, and communicating effectively with others..
Indicative assessments in this unit are as follows: (1) laTeX assignment and a practice talk completed in MATH4001; (2) seminar presentation; and (3) dissertation. Further information is available in the unit outline.

Supplementary assessment is not available in this unit.

  • The availability of units in Semester 1, 2, etc. was correct at the time of publication but may be subject to change.
  • All students are responsible for identifying when they need assistance to improve their academic learning, research, English language and numeracy skills; seeking out the services and resources available to help them; and applying what they learn. Students are encouraged to register for free online support through GETSmart; to help themselves to the extensive range of resources on UWA's STUDYSmarter website; and to participate in WRITESmart and (ma+hs)Smart drop-ins and workshops.
  • Books and other material wherever listed may be subject to change. Book lists relating to 'Preliminary reading', 'Recommended reading' and 'Textbooks' are, in most cases, available via the Booktopia Textbook Finder, which has the functionality to search by course code, course, ISBN and title, and may also be posted or available at the appropriate school's administrative offices. Where texts are listed in the unit description above, an asterisk (*) indicates that the book is available in paperback.
