Hi, my reply is a little late but hope I can still help! Ill answer this without regard to the uni, because math across unis around the world are typically split into these two branches.Don'tMessWithMommy wrote:Hi,

Anyone can advise what is the difference between Applied Mathematics, Mathematics and Statistic in NUS?

Any information will be helpful. Thanks!!!

Basically applied maths is the study of using math to solve real world problems. It uses math to study, explain and predict the real world. In that way it's very closely related to physics too due to mechanics.

I'm not sure whether you mean 'Mathematics and Statistics' or the two separately. I'm not clear on Statistics in NUS but I assume Mathematics on its own refers to pure maths. Pure math is really the study of math for the sake of it. You study the theories and intangible problems of math. You delve into the very basic definitions and learn to understand them. It's really like studying a science. Applied mathematicians will then use the discoveries and theories of pure math to solve real world problems.

Can't really answer the statistics part as I'm unsure, but I think it has the similar separation of pure and applied as well!
