The Mathematics minor provides an opportunity for students to strengthen their facility with quantitative analysis in their chosen discipline and to provide the necessary content for future math teachers. Mathematics contributes technical tools for precise reasoning and communication. The study of mathematics provides a paradigm of critical thinking: identifying and questioning premises, inferring patterns from evidence, deducing conclusions from hypotheses, and expressing ideas clearly- all benefiting the diverse needs of student pursuing undergraduate study in science, social science, technology, business, education and the liberal arts.
Note: Mathematics major students cannot minor in Mathematics.
Courses used as part of the minor must have a minimum grade of 2.0 for each course.
