The Mathematics minor provides students with a solid foundation in quantitative literacy and a greater understanding of the organization of mathematics.
The Mathematics Minor emphasizes developing your ability to apply mathematics and quantitative thinking when analyzing mathematical problems, making decisions, predicting outcomes, and verifying results. From a core foundation in statistics and calculus, you'll choose from a broad array of electives. The Mathematics minor complements a variety of majors, from education and the sciences, to business and the arts.

This course provides a general introduction to the basic concepts of probability and descriptive statistics. Computer-based methods for data collection, calculation, display, and analysis are integrated into the course. Students examine the advantages and limitations of the use of statistics in the investigation of contemporary issues and problems in science, health, education, management, and the social sciences. A research project involving descriptive statistics is required.
Calculus is the mathematical study of change. It provides a tool for exploration of a broad range of phenomena across the physical, biological,and social sciences. This course introduces concepts of limit, continuity, derivative, and the definite integral and draws connections between the graphical ideas of tangents and area and the functional ideas of instantaneous rate of change and net change. This course requires a facility with algebra and functions, including exponential functions,logarithms, trigonometric functions, linear functions, and logarithms.
