Upon completion of the Mathematics minor, students will gain:
- Technical skill in completing mathematical processes; By technical skill we mean both the ability to correctly apply standard algorithms found in the undergraduate mathematics curriculum as well as the ability to choose an appropriate algorithm.
- Breadth and depth of knowledge of mathematics; By breadth we mean work in both the applied and pure areas of mathematics. By depth we mean the ability to recognize, represent, and connect mathematical ideas in multiple ways; the ability to reason both inductively and deductively; and the ability to meaningfully engage in the process of mathematical problem solving.
- An understanding of the relationship of mathematics to other disciplines.
- An ability to communicate mathematics effectively, both orally and in writing.
- A capability of understanding and interpreting written materials in mathematics.
- An ability to use technology to do mathematics.
