Students in the Department of Mathematics will learn how to formulate and solve real-world problems.

Students in the Department of Mathematics learn how to formulate and solve real-world problems. Students develop these abilities through coursework that emphasizes creative and critical thinking, as well as precise and accurate expression of solutions. Mathematics majors learn to:

  • Read and understand mathematics.
  • Use critical and creative thinking, and logic to solve problems. 
  • Understand the processes in mathematics, methods of formal proof, problem solving techniques, strategies and applications of computers in mathematics.

The Department of Mathematics offers a major in mathematics and web/mobile informatics, mathematics/chemistry and mathematics/business administration. We offer a minor in mathematics. Together with the School of Education, we support licensure in adolescent to young adult integrated mathematics (grades 7-12).
