Whether it be in the sciences, business, sport or medicine we hope you will also enjoy studying mathematics for its own sake and come to appreciate its power and diversity. In order to solve problems in the real world, we often begin by translating the problem into mathematical equations to give us a clearer appreciation of the underlying aspects of the problem. We then solve the problem using mathematics and use our findings to make predictions of what will happen in different circumstances. After all, where else can you solve an infinite number of problems in one go!
