Introduction to Mathematics

Maths is everywhere. It underpins the software and technology we use every day and it’s a crucial part of industries as varied as engineering, business and games design. 

Whether you want to become a mathematician and aim to solve the world’s hardest mathematical equations, or find a role in finance and tech, studying a maths degree can take you far. 

It’s also a highly rewarding discipline to study—and one that’s great for your brain.
