1998-1999 Catalog
Department of Mathematics


The Department of Mathematics offers the Bachelor of Arts (BA) in mathematics and the Bachelor of Science (BS) in mathematics that has flexibility to allow the student to concentrate in either mathematics or applied mathematics. The two programs are designed to produce graduates with a solid foundation in calculus, abstract and linear algebra, probability and statistics, and real analysis, as well as some knowledge in other areas of mathematics. Graduates of these programs will demonstrate an ability to solve problems creatively and effectively, to reason logically and to apply mathematical skills and modern technology in positions in industry or the professions, or to continue their studies at the graduate level.

Expected Outcomes

Graduates will have:

  • an understanding of calculus and an ability to use calculus in applications
  • knowledge of algebraic structures
  • knowledge of the real numbers, functions, the topological properties of R, differentiation, and integration
  • knowledge and ability, to apply probability density functions
  • knowledge of appropriate mathematical models
  • the ability to think critically
  • the ability to understand mathematical arguments and to construct mathematical proofs
  • the ability to use computational devices and software in problem solving situations
  • communication to acquire, develop, and convey mathematical knowledge
