Aims of the Program

First, we aim to give each student an understanding of basic mathematics and its application to solving problems expressible by algebraic equations and inequalities. Second, we aim to train students to understand the fundamental concepts of mathematics so that they can teach the subject on the elementary or secondary level. Third, we aim to give a solid foundation in the area of mathematics which will prepare students to pursue further studies in mathematics, the physical sciences, economics, and the engineering sciences.

Mathematics Foundation Courses

It is recognized that attempting a mathematics course for which a student is not prepared can be challenging and frustrating. In order that the mathematics experience be as smooth and gentle as possible, the department offers two review courses, MATH 011 and MATH 012 to provide a foundation for college-level mathematics courses. These are available for any student who needs to take advantage of the additional time and exposure and build a solid basis in algebra. Students whose SAT or ACT mathematics score recommends they register for MATH 110 or a higher-level mathematics course are not permitted to register for either MATH 011 or MATH 012 except by the permission of the department.
