Mathematics

UCAS Code: 2G73 Duration: 3 years

Overview

Hear from one of our tutors about studying Mathematics at Liverpool Hope.

‌Mathematics is a fascinating and exciting subject which underpins modern business, commerce, engineering, science and technology: it is as old as civilisation itself, and yet it is still the only way to quantify, explain and organise the world around us.

At Liverpool Hope, you will develop a passion and enthusiasm for Mathematics and its applications, and you will acquire a range of mathematical skills and techniques enabling you to handle problems involving complex data.

IMA LogoThis single honours BSc programme has been accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications. This programme will meet the educational requirements of the Chartered Mathematician designation, awarded by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications, when it is followed by subsequent training and experience in employment to obtain equivalent competences to those specified by the Quality Assurance Agency (QAA) for taught masters degrees.

Why choose this subject?

  • Accredited by the Institute of Mathematics and its Applications.
  • 100% of students were satisfied overall with Mathematics at Liverpool Hope University (National Student Survey 2015).
  • The course takes an applied approach to mathematical modelling and problem-solving.
  • There are excellent career prospects.
  • You will learn from enthusiastic researchers and teachers who are at the forefront of mathematical enquiry with major grants to explore topics such as ‘STEM Mathematics for the Knowledge Economy’ and a Leverhulme Trust grant to explore the area of Mathematical Biology and Membrane Computing.
  • The Department hosts the Centre for Applicable Mathematics and Systems Science for research and knowledge transfer activities, as well as to promote the fundamental importance of Mathematics to society and industry.
  • You will study in well-equipped, up-to-date laboratories.
  • With 100% of the Research Outputs of the Department at internationally excellent or internationally recognised level the Department ranked 5th in the North-West for Research Intensity. (Research Excellence Framework 2014)

Curriculum

Level 1

You will receive a broad introduction to the subject with a focus on Mathematical Thinking and Mathematical Modelling. You will be given well-structured learning activities that lead to more independent project work, which is the best way to develop the fundamental skills that will lay the foundation for successful study at Level 2. You will study specific areas of Mathematics such as Calculus, Probability Theory and Linear Algebra. Matlab will be used as a computational environment.

Level 2

You will study Mathematical Modelling and problem solving and approaches for Computational Simulations.

Level 3

You will study Applied Mathematics topics such as Optimisation and Operations Research where you will apply mathematical understanding to solve real-world problems.

You will be assessed through both examination and coursework. Coursework is mainly project based, which aims to apply mathematical understanding to problem solving. At Levels 1 and 2, 50 per cent of the assessment is through examination. At Level 3, assessment is 100 per cent coursework based.

Employability

As a Liverpool Hope Mathematics graduate, you will be highly competent in abstraction,analysis of structure and logical thinking. You will also have expertise in formulating and solving problems.

You will have focused on the use of Mathematics in solving problems that arise in industrial, commercial, physical, biological and educational contexts and, as a highly numerate graduate, you will be in great demand from employers.

Indeed, a recent report notes that employment for mathematicians is expected to increase “much faster than average for all occupations”. Some of our graduates also go on to further study, and there are opportunities to study at Liverpool Hope for taught Masters as well as Doctoral research-based qualifications.
