# statistics 3 (edexcel) help watch

oh yea you three really need to step it up tbh
Sure thing, whenever you chat up the next hot chick on a stats thread we'll come up with something more original

being serious here, is maths as bath more physics than maths?
First year, first semester:

Algebra 1A -
Analysis 1A - these two are just your standard pure maths stuff that you should get anywhere. Not much fun in my opinion but some people like it. (Analysis is loosely similar to STEP)
Methods & Applications 1A - FP2/FP3/C4/ some other stuff, bringing everyone up to speed.
Probability and Statistics 1A - mostly icky probability stuff and combinatorics, probably not something you see much of in stats modules.
Programming and discrete Mathematics 1A - some D1 type stuff and similar things, as well as one piece of computing coursework.

Second semester:

Algebra 1B - substantially different to Algebra 1A - more focused on applications, some FP3 stuff to do with eigenvectors and determinants of 3x3/4x4 matrices and some other matrix stuff.
Analysis 1B... can't remember how did I pass this one?
Methods and Applications 1B - The only physics (well, mechanics) type module in the first year. A small amount of M2 in it, can't remember much else.
Probability and Statistics 1B - more Statistics than probability, a lot of stuff from S2 and some other stuff.
Programming and discrete Mathematics 1B - icky algebra stuff as well as 2 pieces of computing coursework.

I think you mean... STEP it up

x.
i think i would 50/50 enjoy that (although ill not jump to assumptions)

2nd and 3rd year are freer in choice right?

is it possible to do pretty much all pure and/or mathematical applications (like C4/FP3 kind of idea) and not bother with mechanics, stats, probability etc at all towards the end

Oh engineering is much worse. Someone on Aero at Southampton was telling me his uni has one of the highest ratios for the course in the country.. 1 to 10
1 to 10

We should study Pharmacology (4 girls per guy ) or medicine (really smart girls )

yea I asked them to make me some STEP IV papers bc ive been stepping it up so much
Spoiler:

imagine STEP IV though

As long as you're on MathSci you have some nice choices.

Here's the list of all of the units if you want to have a look.

Just a heads up, Stats 2A is probably the easiest unit in second year (A lot of S3/S4 stuff, the computing coursework is easy)

You have some degree of freedom in the second year but it's third year where you can choose a lot of pure/applications type stuff, but who knows, you might change your mind and decide algebra/analysis type stuff isn't for you.

i remember you said about MMath/MathSci and how its good to swap to MathSci, is this because of the more application based maths you'll learn? i know you said you do some finance type stuff these days. but if i wanted to basically study the most (and not to be one of those kids,the "oh when will i ever use this" type) seemingly useless but enjoyable maths by the third year would I be best sticking to the MMath?

the third year looks so good for choice, the main module I want to study is topology, based on a few videos I watched , I can imagine the maths being crazy

will they tell us which modules are recommended, either bc of general easiness ,good lecturers, or easier to get high scores etc

yea i know it may only be because im still young and quite immature that i want to study pure until my eyes bleed , maybe once I get older ill appreciate applications of maths a little more
16. Wtf

Now the essays are between Sean and Dylan. Did Sean just steal Dylan ??

pretty much [s] I find step III questions hard to read sometimes, nevermind actually do them.

what would they even ask on STEP IV papers
