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, interactive media design and computing, mathematics/chemistry and mathematics/business administration. We offer a minor in mathematics. Together with the Division of Education, we support licensure in adolescent to young adult integrated mathematics (grades 7-12).
