## Overview

Using mathematics we discover subtle and sometimes unexpected features of these phenomena, as well develop ways to predict their behaviour which is an extremely important component of our understanding of the world and the space that surrounds us.

Statistics can help us make sense of large data sets and complex systems in areas such as astronomy, genomics, social networks, climate simulation, and medicine. Statisticians examine the patterns which arise in data with the goal of distinguishing true patterns from chance effects.

The Mathematics and Statistics Gateway program introduces students to the foundational tools and ideas of mathematics leading into our degree programs.
