Mathematics

The various disciplines within the Department of Mathematics, Physics and Computer Science are united by their reliance upon:

  • methods for discovering and demonstrating patterns, and for constructing structures that exhibit, unify and illuminate these patterns;
  • applications of these structures to model a wide variety of phenomena in mathematics and the sciences;
  • precise language as a means to express patterns and describe structures.

Mathematics is the art of creating, recognizing, and analyzing abstract quantitative and geometrical structures. Students who pursue this course of study are trained to solve theoretical and practical problems and to communicate their solutions effectively.

Accordingly, graduates of the Math/Physics/Computer Science department will:

  • demonstrate knowledge of basic content appropriate to mathematics;
  • communicate precisely and effectively on quantitative matters;
  • perform basic mathematical modeling and interpret the results in terms of the phenomena being modeled; and
  • read mathematical material, interpret correctly what has been read, and apply it correctly.

This training provides a foundation for further graduate and professional study in many fields as well as for employment in business and industry.
