The current trend toward a technology- based economy places a growing demand on mathematic and scientific skills, and as the world becomes increasingly complex, the ability to collect relevant data, process it, and make decisions based upon the results has increasing value. Mathematics at Medaille provides students with a flexible background in these skills, which can be applied to a variety of career and graduate school choices. Many fields – from science to business to education - have growing technological needs which mathematics training will help our students fulfill.

PARENT/GUEST NAME:

Mathematics is more than just numbers: students will gain experience in how to recognize, represent, and communicate relations and patterns found in naturally occurring situations. Medaille’s Mathematics degree prepares learners with the conceptual mathematical knowledge and the ability to apply that knowledge to a variety of situations.

Mathematics Overview Bachelor of Science Degree As the world becomes increasingly complex, information skills become increasingly vital. The ability to collect relevant data, process it, and make decisions based upon the results is a common theme in industrialized society. An aspect of the Mathematics program is to provide an opportunity to enhance these information skills by covering the core areas of mathematics. The curriculum is tailored to complement the degree program in Adolescent Teaching: Mathematics 7-12 with Special Education. Students in this degree program may also complete the Mathematics Program by taking at most 6 extra credits.  Credit Distribution General Education Component  ENG 110 College Writing II (3) ENG 200 Analytical Writing (3) GEN 110 Introduction to Critical Thought (3) GEN 220 A Global Perspective on Colonial North America (3) GEN 230 Creative Expressions (3) GEN 240 Scientific Discovery (3) GEN 410 Baccalaureate Capstone I (3) GEN 411 Baccalaureate Capstone II (3) SPE 130 Fundamentals of Public Speaking (3) MAT 251 Calculus I (3) MAT 381 Statistics and Probability I (3) Minimum General Education Credit Hours 33
