Mathematics Department

The Department of Mathematics serves every student on campus by providing courses that satisfy triad education requirements, furnishing course content in support of several majors, and offering a comprehensive program for mathematics majors and minors.  The major requirements guide the majors in progressing from procedural/computational understanding of mathematics to a broad understanding encompassing logical reasoning, generalization, abstraction, and formal proof, in accordance with the national standards published by the Mathematical Association of America.  The faculty seeks to instill in all students an appreciation of the beauty and utility of mathematics, to facilitate improved confidence and ability in their mathematical skills and quantitative literacy, and, most of all, to foster in them a life-long love of learning.
