Mathematics Minor

Main page content

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.
