1. provide general mathematics service courses, and
2. provide a robust and sound curriculum for mathematics majors.
To achieve the first, the Department offers a variety of 1000 and 2000 level courses such as College Algebra, Trigonometric Functions, Liberal Arts Mathematics I, Liberal Arts Mathematics II, and Pre-Calculus, to name a few. These courses lay the foundation for the student who will become an independent thinker and a productive citizen in our community aware of his/her responsibilities to promote growth and contribute to advances in our society. There are several sequences that can be used to satisfy the six credit hours requirement for compliance with the State Board of Education Rule 6A-10.30(2) also known as the Gordon Rule and students must speak with advisors from their respective major departments to determine these.
For the latter part of the Department's mission, we not only offer upper level courses to provide students with a sound foundation in mathematics but we also promote and encourage participation in summer internships and research projects with faculty members and industry/national laboratory representatives. These activities help to complete a mathematics major's college experience by allowing collaborations with other disciplines and experiencing the reality of mathematics highlighting the robustness of the classical theories. Ultimately, our curriculum along with these research experiences prepare students for success in graduate school and advancement in their professional career.
