The Department of Mathematics and Statistics offers a full range of undergraduate programs and courses through the faculties of Arts, Science, Management and Engineering to respond to the differing needs of our students. The department is also committed to providing excellence in service teaching, that is in providing supporting courses for students whose primary interest is not mathematics nor statistics, but who require mathematical knowledge and expertise in order to pursue their chosen careers.

These pages are laid out to provide support and information to all students and are laid out under the following headings:

- Mathematics students, enrolled in a full or joint mathematics program at the liberal science, majors or honours level.
- Additional information on orientation and advising for U1 Maths students.
- Freshman students.
- Students outside the department, enrolled in a minor program in mathematics or statistics, a core science component in the Faculty of Science, a service course, or a student just seeking to take an elective course in mathematics or statistics.

## Graduate Interest Groups(GIGs)

Graduate interest groups are a new initiative by the Faculty of Science available to science U3 undergraduates and graduate students. Details can be found on the GIGs webpage.
