In Mathematics and Statistics, students explore relationships in quantities, space and data and learn to express these relationships in ways that help them to make sense of the world around them. These two disciplines are related but require different ways of thinking to solve problems. Both equip students with effective means for investigating, interpreting and explaining situations. Mathematicians and Statisticians use symbols, graphs, and diagrams to help them find and communicate patterns and relationships, and they create models to represent both real-life and hypothetical situations. These situations are drawn from a wide range of social, cultural, scientific, technological, health, environment, and economic contexts.
Mathematics is the exploration and use of patterns and relationships in quantities, space, and time
Statistics is the exploration and use of patterns and relationships in data.
Calculus is the study of how mathematics can be used to investigate, interpret and explain the universe around us.
