# Course overview

**Special entrance requirement:** B in Leaving Certificate Mathematics at Higher Level.

Within the TSM (TR 001) programme, mathematics may be combined with economics, geography, philosophy, psychology, English literature, French, German or music.

This option would be particularly suited to those who are equally adept at say, French, as well as mathematics and prefer the variety of two subjects to the more intensive study of one. But with economics, philosophy and geography, many students take mathematics because its study contributes to their understanding of the other subject.

When combined with economics, geography or philosophy, the student can choose at the end of the second year whether to study both subjects equally for four years or to specialize one of the two subjects. When combined with English literature, French, German, music or psychology, one of the two subjects is studied for three years only, and the fourth year is devoted entirely to the other subject.

## Course Content: Mathematics with Subjects other than Economics

**Year 1:**- modules in Algebra, Analysis and advanced calculus
**Year 2:**- modules in Algebra, Analysis and a more applied topic of Mathematics (such as Mechanics, Computational Mathematics or Statistics)
**Year 3:**- students have considerable choice of modules in a range of mathematical topics
**Year 4:**- (if applicable) students again choose their modules from a wide range of options, in Pure Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, Statistics and computational or numerical methods
