Pure and Applied Mathematics
||Faculty of Arts and Science
|Field of Study:
Pure Mathematics is primarily the study of mathematics for its own sake. This is not to say that Pure Mathematics has no applications, but the initial motivation for its study is inner beauty and rigour, as opposed to application or practical use. Applied Mathematics develops out of a need to solve problems in the real world. Often, the solution of a problem in Applied Mathematics requires a deep understanding of the underlying Pure Mathematics. Thus, the distinction between the two is often a fine line. |
Mathematics Co-op students are usually hired for their organizational and analytical skills and their problem-solving abilities. Students become familiar with optimization techniques from operations research. They are expected to have a strong foundation in mathematics and to be familiar with basic algorithms and programming using a variety of software packages. They may also be required to participate in library and Internet-based research related to the development of mathematical systems and algorithm applications. Students must be able to maintain web-related documentation of updates and testing.
