讲座内容简介:

Mathematics is all around us. If you study any STEM-related subject (ScienceTechnologyEngineering and Mathematics) you need to be a competent Mathematicianbut the reach of Mathematics is wider than just that - it permeates many other fieldsincluding Medicine, Politics and the Humanities and Social Sciences too. In factwe use probabilityand oddsto make every-day decisions about the most trivial things! In this talk, we will showcase some of the exciting application areas of Mathematics and Statistics, before covering the basics of studying in a Mathematics-related discipline at Newcastle University. Through a special partnership between Newcastle University and Jiangnan Universityyou might be eligible to study with us for two years, to experience life as an undergraduate Mathematician at one of the UK's most exciting cities.
