The main emphasis of the Applied Mathematics course is on developing the ability of the students to start with a problem, in non-mathematical form and transform it into mathematical language.  It focuses on the application of Mathematics in other domains using topics such as Statistics, Probability, discrete mathematics and Particle Mechanics.  The Pure Mathematics syllabus is more abstract in nature and while some of the content may have applications in other fields of study, the focus is on developing competence in mathematics itself in preparation for further studies.  Topics covered include Algebra, Trigonometry, Geometry, Complex Numbers and Calculus.
