Description"The extension of the degree programs has enabled the Department to offer courses in both pure mathematics and statistics. Pure mathematics is characterized by mathematical rigor in looking at concepts, theories and results. Mathematicians in pure mathematics often employ 'abstract thinking' in studying 'space' and 'numbers'. Statistics, on the other hand, is a branch of applied mathematics which deals with decision making based on data, that is, it deals with real-life situations. It is mathematical in nature, consequently, certain branches of statistics have characteristics of pure mathematics. The statistical courses offered by the Department have been popular with students from the School of Humanities and Social Sciences and the School of Education."
