Through teaching, research and service, the Department of Mathematics seeks to provide leadership in the mathematical sciences by preparing students with the mathematical understanding, problem-solving skills and dispositions that enable them to excel in their chosen careers; increasing mathematical and scientific knowledge through publication and presentation; supporting the broader mathematics education community; and mentoring others for generous service through a committed Christian life.
Mathematics is foundational to physics, engineering, and computer science, and is increasingly important in many fields of study such as finance, accounting, economics, biology, medicine, and environmental science. Students majoring in these and other fields will find that acquiring an additional major in mathematics or mathematical studies greatly enhances the marketability of their degree.
Special Requirements and Placement Test
Non-overlapping Credit Restrictions
Because there is substantial overlap in material covered in the following groups of courses, no student is granted credit (other than general elective credit) in more than one course from each group:
- MATH182, 191, 195 (Calculus with Applications, Calculus I, Calculus I for Biology)
- MATH145, 165, 166 (Reasoning with Functions, College Algebra, College Algebra for Business)
Minimum Grade for Prerequisites
Except for MATH191 and 195 which require a C in the prerequisite class (MATH168), the minimum grade to satisfy prerequisites is C-.
Mathematics Placement Examination (MPE) and General Education Mathematics Requirement
For more information on the MPE and General Education Mathematics Requirements follow the link. The MPE score is valid as a prerequisite for mathematics courses for 3 years after it is earned. For more information, see the Mathematics Web site.
The Department of Mathematics is a participant in the Behavioral Neuroscience program funded by the National Science Foundation.
