# Whats applied Maths? watch

1. Whats applied Maths?

Hello,

My college offers two types of maths courses Pure and statistic AND PURE and Applied. I don't know whats applied maths, can anyone please explain to me before i make my choice.

thanks

2. in applied maths you do mechanics module(s). I think.

To make up the maths a-level you do 6 modules, 3 in first year and 3 in second.

The pure is called core, there are four of these.

So in your first year you will do c1, c2 and a "applied unit" which i think is mechanics. There is also statisics or decision maths.

4. yes, thats the point i'm not 100% on. Need someone else to confirm it.

When i get my math a-level it'll say "Applied Maths". If i'd done the decision module instead of statistics i still think it would say applied maths. But if you just do statistics with it i'm really not sure. Sorry.
5. Any maths that isn't a core module, is applied.
6. wel;l...basically applying maths, no? eg...mechanics modules...i.e. M1-M6
