Mathematics and Statistics Options for First Year - Bachelor of Environments


Your choice of subjects in Mathematics and Statistics depends on your planned area of major studies. Please refer to the Bachelor of Environments website for further details about your choices.

 

Mathematics and Statistics as Core Subjects

The following table applies to students who are required to do mathematics and statistics as part of their degree. Please refer to the Unversity Handbook for a complete description of these subjects.

Environments students with a qualification other than VCE should ask Stop 1 for advice about their first year mathematics and statistics subjects. Students requiring further mathematics and statistics course advice, may see a course advisor in the Mathematics and Statistics Learning Centre in the Peter Hall Building (formerly Richard Berry).

Entry to MAST10008 Accelerated Mathematics 1

Permission to enrol in MAST10008 is automatic only for students who have obtained a Study Score of 38 or more for VCE Specialist Mathematics 3/4 or a score of 6 or higher in IB HL Mathematics. (This is the Study Score issued by VCAA, not the scaled up Study Score used for ATAR calculations.)

Environments students with a qualification other than VCE year 12 (interstate, overseas, Trinity Foundation etc.) should ask Stop 1 for advice about whether they are automatically eligible for entry to MAST10008.

Students who are not automatically eligible, but are very keen to enter MAST10008 may be eligible to sit the Advanced Placement Test (APT) held during the Friday of Orientation Week of Semester 1. Information about the APT is available here.
