In response to COVID-19 disruptions Applied Mathematics has relaxed grade requirements associated with courses affected by distancing measures. For FW 2020-21 a grade of 50% or Pass in all pre-requisite courses will be acceptable for enrolment in Calc 1301B, Calc 2402A, AM 2402A, AM 2811B, AM 2814G, and AM 3815A. Similarly, 1000-level grade requirements for admission to Applied Mathematics and Applied Mathematical Methods modules will be relaxed to 50% or Pass.
What is Applied Mathematics?
Applied mathematics teaches students how to use their love of numbers and computers to tackle challenging real-world problems. In the Department of Applied Mathematics at Western researchers model the spread of infectious diseases, interactions among sub-atomic particles, and the behaviour of materials on the micro- and nano-scales.
