Mathematics Papers at Tauranga (2024)

Mathematics is a language of fundamental importance which underpins many activities of society. It plays a crucial role, both theoretically and practically, in many areas such as science, computing, economics and finance.

Mathematics is available as a first major for the Bachelor of Computing and Mathematical Sciences with Honours (BCMS(Hons)) and the Bachelor of Science (BSc). Mathematics may also be included as a second major or minor in other undergraduate degrees, subject to approval of the Division in which the student is enrolled.

To complete Mathematics as a single major for the BCMS(Hons) or the BSc, students must gain 135 points from papers listed for Mathematics, including 105 points above 100 level, and 60 points above 200 level. Students must complete MATHS101 or MATHS104, MATHS102 or MATHS103, MATHS201, and MATHS202. Students may include up to 30 points of DATAX-coded papers as part of their Mathematics major. Students in the BCMS(Hons) will also need to take at least 60 points in the subject of Mathematics at 500 level, including MATHS520.

To complete Mathematics as part of a double major for the BCMS(Hons), BSc or other undergraduate degree, students must gain 120 points from papers listed for Mathematics, including 90 points above 100 level, and 45 points above 200 level. Students must complete MATHS101 or MATHS104, MATHS102 or MATHS103, MATHS201, and MATHS202. Students may include up to 30 points of DATAX-coded papers as part of their Mathematics major. Students in the BCMS(Hons) will also need to take at least 60 points in the subject of their first major at 500 level including MATHS520 if Mathematics is the first major.

To complete a minor in Mathematics, students must complete 60 points, including at least 30 points above 100 level. The 60 points must be chosen from the papers listed for the Mathematics major. MATHS135 may also be taken towards a minor. Students may include up to 15 points of DATAX-coded papers.

Note: Students who commenced a major in Mathematics in 2017 or prior are encouraged to contact the Division of Health, Engineering, Computing and Science for programme advice.

There will be no new enrolments in the following degrees: BA(Hons) in Mathematics, BCMS(Hons) in Mathematics and the MA in Mathematics. Students enrolled in these degrees previously should consult the Division of Health, Engineering, Computing and Science for programme advice.

Note on Assessment: To be eligible to pass these papers students should normally achieve a minimum grade of D in the internal assessment and the final examination, and an overall grade of C-.
