This module provides an introduction to the study of combinatorics and finite sets and also the study of probability. It will describe the links between these two areas of study. It provides a foundation both for further study of combinatorics within pure mathematics and for the various statistics modules that are available. It is recommended that students in the Faculties of Arts and Divinity take an even number of the 15-credit 2000-level MT modules.
Pre-requisite(s): Before taking this module you must pass MT1002. If MT1002 has not been passed, advanced higher mathematics (at grade a) or A-Level further mathematics (at grade a) or admission to a fast track mmath programme.
