Hi all,(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

I was just wondering which would be the more beneficial first year uni subject to take given that I would like to major in either chemistry or physics - Discrete Mathematics or Statistics.

The Discrete maths course "focuses on the enumeration of the Catalan Numbers" and is an introduction to fundamental aspects of discrete mathematics. The Statistics course includes work on Data Analysis, Probability and Inference.

At the moment, im thinking that Statistics would probably be the more beneficial course to take, but the Discrete Maths one seems more interesting.

Any opinions would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks!
