Mathematics is one of the oldest and most fundamental sciences. Mathematicians use mathematical theory, computational techniques, algorithms, and the latest computer technology to solve economic, scientific, engineering, physics, and business problems. The work of mathematicians falls into two broad classestheoretical (pure) mathematics and applied mathematics. These classes, however, are not sharply defined, and often overlap. Areas of focus include: financial mathematics, mathematical biology, mathematical physics, mathematical statistics, or computational ma thematics.
Mathematicians often work with other professionals such as engineers, computer scientists, biological and physical scientists, researchers, and others, to provide data as well as analysis of data.
There are three majors available: Mathematics, Applied Mathematics, and Applied Mathematics with a concentration in financial mathematics. For more details about these majors go to the Department of Mathematics.
Courses include:
Calculus, Applied Discrete Mathematics, Foundations of Advanced Mathematics, Differential Equations, Numerical Applications to Differential Equations, Linear Analysis
