In general, the Mathematics Department seeks to expose all students to the joy of doing mathematics and to broaden their view of the numerous uses and societal importance of mathematics.
Our Bachelor of Science in Education is specifically designed to lead to 7-12 certification. It is the perfect choice for students who wish to teach middle school or high school mathematics.
Along the way we will provide bountiful opportunity for you to explore your individual interests. We will offer independent study, special topics courses, internships, and thesis guidance as avenues for intellectual growth. Further engagement is provided through a vibrant community of math enthusiasts participating in one or more of the many group activities sponsored by the Mathematics Department. Join us for our biweekly math club meetings or problem solving seminars. Compete on a team in math modeling, individually in the Putnam Exam or regional competitions. Attend or even present at local and national math conferences.
Whether you get involved in the many extra-curricular activities or not, the B.S. 7- 12 certification program in mathematics is a great place to indulge your interest in mathematics and begin your pathway to a rewarding career.
